Active Directory Restore

Windows Server 2003 introduces the ability to restore deleted ("tombstoned") objects. This simple command-line utility enumerates the deleted objects in a domain and gives you the option of restoring each one. Source code is based on sample code in the Microsoft Platform SDK

Adrestore GUI:

Main features:

  • Browsing the tombstones

  • Domain Controller targeting

  • Can be used with alternative credentials (convenient if you do not logon to your desktop as Domain Admin, which you should never do anyway)

  • User/Computer/OU/Container reanimation

  • Preview of tombstone attributes
