You can use Recovery Manager for Active Directory 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.
You cannot selectively recover domains and delete domains at the same time. During recovery, use only one of these two features. For more information about deleting domains, see Deleting domains during recovery.
The Adjust to Active Directory changes recovery method is performed automatically on Global Catalogs of excluded domains. For more details, see the description of the Adjust to Active directory Changes recovery method here.
In this step, select the domains you want to recover in your recovery project. This step presumes that you have already created a recovery project for your forest. For more information on how to create a recovery project, see Creating a recovery project.
Open the recovery project where you want to select domains to recover.
On the menu bar, click Tools | Recovery Project Settings.
Open the Recovery Mode tab.
In the Recovery mode drop-down list, select Domain Recovery.
Select the check boxes next to the domains you want to recover.
Optionally, you can specify default credentials to access domain controllers in the selected domains.
The recovery of the domains you selected may affect computers in other domains. These computers will be displayed in your recovery project.
In the list of domain controllers, select the domain controller whose recovery settings you want to specify.
Open the General tab to specify the recovery settings.
Repeat these steps for other domain controllers in the project.
For more information, see Domain controller recovery settings and progress.
