Hi there

I have executed a series of changes in AD and I want the same to be rolledback. I have used the following command: ldifde -i -f file_to_import.ldf

Inside that file some changes are as follow:

dn: CN=34weasdasd-de44-4fc3-a8e6-fda0fd23423491.3434.0023404,CN=SERVER1,CN=RpcServices,CN=System,DC=domain,DC=com
changetype: add
objectClass: top
objectClass: leaf
objectClass: connectionPoint
objectClass: rpcEntry
objectClass: rpcServerElement
rpcNsBindings: ncacn_ip_tcp:SERVER1
rpcNsInterfaceID: 3cc90b05-asd-4fc3-a8e6-asdasd.0234.0004
rpcNsTransferSyntax: 8a885d04-1ceb-11c9-9fe8-asdasdasd.0002.0000

Please I need help urgently
Thanks!

but do you know what were the values before?
else you need to do an authoritative restore of the objects you have modified

Hi Tasman
This changes were made on a new test domain, so we can remove them as they are made for a particular application.
In that case, should I use ADSI edit and look for the entries manually? or is it there any other easy way to achieve the removal of all the changes I made?

Thanks a mil.

you can use LDIFDE as well as you did the first time.
to clear attributes:
------
dn: CN=34weasdasd-de44-4fc3-a8e6-fda0fd23423491.3434.0023404,CN=SERVER1,CN=RpcServices,CN=System,DC=domain,DC=com
changetype: modify
objectClass: top
objectClass: leaf
objectClass: connectionPoint
objectClass: rpcEntry
objectClass: rpcServerElement
delete: rpcNsBindings
delete: rpcNsInterfaceID
delete: rpcNsTransferSyntax

but i cannot answer to your question about removing or not the objectclass attribute.
but if you performed the "add", you should then clean it.
