I'm having problems restoring a replica of my DC to a LAB environment. Since this domain controller is going to be the only one or the first one in the LAB do I need to restore it AUTORITATIVE? I don't think I have to, but I'm not sure.

An authoritative restore will wipe the entire domain back to its state at the backup, for recovery purposes, like if someone accidentally deleted an OU, etc.

Might want to read up, I think a non-authoritative restore will work fine.
