Upon the completion of a forest recovery or verify settings operation, you can view a report on that operation.
To view a report
You can use the toolbar in the report window to print or export the report to a preferred format.
It is recommended that you investigate the failure reason for each domain controller whose recovery has failed. For example, make sure the failed domain controller is connected to the network and the recovery settings specified for that domain controller are correct.
In some cases, the Forest Recovery Console may prompt you to perform a certain action to resolve the issue encountered during the domain controllers recovery. If you are not prompted for action, you can perform the next steps.
To select an action for a failed domain controller
Table 35: Actions applicable to failed domain controllers
|Retry All Operations||Allows you to rerun all recovery steps on the domain controller you selected. This action is recommended when you change the recovery method for the failed domain|
|Retry Last Operation||Allows you to rerun the failed recovery step on the domain controller you selected. This action is recommended when you manually fixed the issue that had caused the recovery step to fail.|
|Skip and Continue||Allows you to skip the current failed recovery step for the domain controller you selected and continue the domain controller’s recovery. This action is recommended only if you have manually completed the failed recovery step on the domain controller.|
There may be a situation where you want to add a domain controller that is not being recovered to the running forest recovery operation. You can do so without stopping the forest recovery operation.
To add a domain controller to a running recovery operation
You can use Recovery Manager for Active Directory Disaster Recovery Edition to selectively recover domains in an Active Directory forest. You can use this method if you have identified the domains that include dangerous or unwanted data and want to selectively recover them. Before you proceed with such a selective recovery, make absolutely sure no dangerous or unwanted data is replicated to the domains you do not plan to recover.
