I am trying to recover and Item in active directory and having some issues. I am using power shell with the comad lines below

Import-Module Activedirectory

Get-ADObject -Filter {displayName -eq 'test user'} -IncludeDeletedobjects | Restore-ADobject

Test User is the user I created and deled to test this command but nothing happens it goes to the next line with no error message but the user is not resotred.

Try to put displayName in double quotes and see if that makes a difference.

Instead of:
Get-ADObject -Filter {displayName -eq 'test user'} -IncludeDeletedobjects | Restore-ADobject

Try:
Get-ADObject -Filter {displayName -eq "test user"} -IncludeDeletedObjects | Restore-ADObject

Also, in IncludeDeletedObjects all letters are capital. I don't know if that matters. Same with ADObject

I've used ADRestore on Windows Server 2008:

Click Enumerate Tombstones. If it's listed below, click on it and click Restore Object.

You may have to upload a screen shot of ADRestore running. On my version, it says "Help" at the top and right below that is "Enumerate Tombstones". Are you connected to your Active Directory with it?

I run ADrestore and I can see the list of deleted accounts, in there the one I need to restore. What do I do next?

It should be: left-click to highlight it and then left-click on 'Restore Object' near the top of the dialog box.
