Restore Object in Windows 2008
Posted on 2013-12-23
I have a client that decided to do some cleanup. They have one main user id that most of the users use in Active Directory (let's call it USER01).
Today they decided to go into AD Users and delete USER01. Obviously it was an oh crap moment and they recreated USER01.
Well now when a user goes to a machine (mixture of Windows 7 Pro and Windows XP Pro) it now creates a new profile on the PC.
I need to either:
A) See how to restore this one deleted object in AD (by the way I do not think that there is any AD backup and there is only one server), OR
B) How do I copy over a profile from the original USER01 on the PC to the new USER01 on the PC?
Of course this would happen during Christmas time!
