Restore deleted AD Group and its members

50 or so groups have been deleted from my AD.
Now I can reanimate these groups but that doesnt get the members back in them.

How can I achieve this ?

Thanks Rod

Hi.

You need to reanimate these groups and afterwards you can restore the users.
There are 3 methods for it. All these methods are described in this link (is a lot to progress though).

Do you have a system state backup?  An authoritative restore would be what you need for group memberships.  Tombstone reanimation strips most attributes.

On another note this might be a good reason to convince the boss to go to 2008 R2 (or 2012 in a month).  This becomes much easier once you you have the AD Recycle bin enabled.

Thanks
