Instant Object Recovery for Microsoft® Active Directory®

Rapid recovery of Active Directory – one of the most business-critical applications – is essential to eliminate IT services downtime and ensure business continuity. Yet, properly restoring deleted Active Directory objects or reverting incorrect/unauthorized changes can be a complex, time-consuming, and error-prone process. For example, with native and third-party tools relying on tombstone, it is often not possible to achieve a complete recovery of objects and their attributes (such as reverting modified or incorrectly added objects, or restoring group memberships, home directory, or enabled/disabled status).

Backups of Active Directory VMs created by NAKIVO Backup & Replication store the complete information about Active Directory, including all its containers, objects, and attributes. By its nature, such backups store more information than what is available in the tombstone and thus NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides the ability to go beyond the standard tombstone recovery capabilities of Active Directory.

With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you can instantly access Active Directory databases directly from compressed and deduplicated VM backups, and:

  • Search for Active Directory objects and containers
  • Browse the Active Directory database
  • View Active Directory object attributes
  • Download entire containers or objects in .LDF format or forward them over email.
  • Download entire containers or objects in .LDF format or forward them over email.

The object recovery process is simple and straightforward: just choose a VM backup, a recovery point, and push a button. NAKIVO Backup & Replication will automatically find the Active Directory database in the VM backup and display the contents of the database right in the product’s Web interface. Now you can search and browse Active Directory database, view object attributes, and recover selected objects and containers.
