Copy & Restore an Active Directory Container

Posted on 2006-05-01

Hi All,

I am currently testing an upgrade of a 3rd party application which the current version has extended it's active directory schema and created some child objects under the System folder.  However, the newer version of the upgrade and its AD migration tool for this application is not working properly and deletes the old schema objects so the previous version of the app no longer works.  I would like to make a copy of the object under Active Directory and then place it back to it's original location (after doing the migration) in order to keep the older version to work.  Is it possible to do this?  Thanks!
