How do I restore a deleted user account in Active Directory?
Posted on 2006-06-06
I am trying to figure out how I can restore a user account in Active Directory that has been deleted. I have both the system state as well as the winnt folder backed up. I have tried doing and authoritative restore as described in some other posts as well as Microsoft's website, but nothing I do seems to work. The server says the restore as completed successfully, but when I go to look in Active Directory Users and Computers, the user account simply does not appear under Users. This is still the case even after I reboot the server. Any advice one can give would be greatly appreciated.
