Completing the Online Restore Wizard

This is the final page of the wizard. Click Back to select and compare/restore additional objects or click Finish to close the Online Restore Wizard. After you select a backup on the Backup Selection page, the wizard prepares temporary data, unpacking the backup. This is a lengthy operation. The prepared data is erased when you close the wizard, unless you have selected the Keep extracted data after completing the wizard check box on the Backup Data Preparation page.

Online Restore Wizard for AD LDS (ADAM)

The Online Restore Wizard for AD LDS (ADAM) helps you recover AD LDS (ADAM) objects deleted or modified since the backup. With this wizard you can selectively restore individual directory objects and object attributes from an Active Directory backup, compare a backup with Active Directory, and compare two backups taken from the same domain controller. The wizard has the following steps:

Wizard Operation Mode

Use this page to choose whether to perform restore and report changes or only compare two AD LDS (ADAM) backups taken from the same AD LDS (ADAM) instance.

  • Compare, restore, and report changes in AD LDS (ADAM). With this option, the wizard performs per-attribute comparison of selected objects between the backup and AD LDS (ADAM), and allows you to proceed to the object restore.
  • Compare two backups and report the differences. With this option, the wizard performs per-attribute comparison of selected objects between two AD LDS (ADAM) backups taken from the same AD LDS (ADAM) instance.
