Use this window to view a list of Active Directory backups that are registered in the Recovery Manager for Active Directory configuration database for the selected domain, if any, and select a backup.
In the Group Policy Restore Wizard, you can use backups created by applications that store backups in Microsoft Tape Format (MTF), such as Windows Backup or Veritas Backup Exec.
Use this window to optionally change the folder where Recovery Manager for Active Directory will unpack the selected backup. The Path to store unpacked backups box displays the path to the folder currently used to keep unpacked backups. Each unpacked backup will be saved in a separate subfolder of that folder. To leave that path unchanged, click Next. To specify other path, type the path to a new folder or click Browse to select it. When finished, click Next. Your changes will not affect the default settings for unpacked backups.
This page enables you to view the progress of the backup extraction. To stop the unpack process, click Cancel. You can also have the wizard keep the extracted data for future use. When the Keep extracted data after completing the wizard check box is selected, the wizard saves the extracted DIT database in a temporary folder, so you can reuse this information for subsequent starts of the Online Restore Wizard, Online Restore Wizard for AD LDS (ADAM), or Group Policy Restore Wizard. The temporary folder is specified using the Unpacked Backups tab in the Recovery Manager for Active Directory Properties dialog box. When this check box is cleared, the extracted data is erased when you close the wizard. Because the unpacking process is a lengthy operation, you should not close the wizard unless you are sure that no additional objects need to be compared or restored within the current session.
Use this page to specify a domain controller to restore Group Policy. The domain controller must be running and accessible from the network.
