We are running Windows Server 2012 and I'm almost certain that the AD recycle bin was enabled during deployment.
Yesterday, one of the technicians deleted an OU along with all of the group objects that are contained within the object and we're trying to restore it.
I can't seem to find the "Deleted Objects" container when opening Active Directory Administrative Center like my research has led me to believe it would have so I have resorted to the CLI in trying to restore the objects.
In the attached screenshot, you will see that I ran the Get-ADObject command and successfully found the folder I want to restore. I then piped the command into the "Restore-ADObject -whatif" command which didn't error out. When I removed the "-whatif" option, it started to error.
Any reason why this is giving me so many issues?
