Active Directory object recovery
Posted on 2013-12-17
I had a question about Active Directory object recovery. I have an AD where two problems arose. The first was after clicking "enable inheritance" on a couple of users. It changed a list of known accounts to unknown. The second is one of the unknown accounts was accidentally removed. Being unknown, I don't know what it was to add it back.
I am somewhat familiar with AD Restore, but not sure if this will work since the changes would have replicated to all of the other DC's in the area. The box where the changes were made was an exchange server with ADUC installed and it would have replicated (from my understanding) to the DC's.
The exchange box is a 2012 server with exchange 2013 on it. The other DC's are 2008R2 I believe.
Can someone point in me the right direction of what I need to do to rollback the changes (if possible)
If more information is needed, I will provide as I can.
Thanks in advanced
