Microsoft Server 2012 Active Directory

We had a computer object deleted, and it was advised to recover it using LDP.EXE.

If I do this, will the SID remain the same and would I have to put it back in a workgroup and rejoin the domain?

What are the ramifications if I recover this computer object.

LDP is useful for User objects, I would suggest you to un-join and rejoin machine to domain. If you try to retrieve computer object from LDP, it is of no use and it is as equal as corrupt object (Machine account expired). So better proceed with Unjoin and rejoin.

Why LDP..Dont you have AD recycle bin enabled..??
Anyways .. I would have rejoined the machine to domain rather than all LDP stuff...It makes no difference

zenvenky your correct.
It did not show up when I used the recycle bin, and it showed the deleted object using ldp.exe.

thanks going to un-join/rejoin the domain
