I accidentally deleted an AD account, but I have a copy of the old domain controller runing in the lab. A lot of our Application Development go by the user's gui. How can I copy the gui number from the copy in the lab to the account I just created. I have never restore an AD account and I'm kind of intimidated by it. I don't want to mess anything up. Can you please help.

You mean GUID?

You cannot... but... restoring needn't be scary, grab this:

It's only valid for 60 days or so, but that's more than enough to get the account back. It will be missing a lot of attributes, but the GUID and any other important attributes will be there.

Thank you for the response. I had found the link before but I'm not allow to install any sofware that will touch our domain controllers. I'm sure that for other people this will be the perfect answer.
