Error - Trying to restore AD Object

See attachment. There is an error being thrown when I am trying to restore an Active Directory object. This user has been deleted for some time. (My guess is between 3-6 months) I am trying to restore the object through LDP.

The path I have selected should be correct, not sure what the issue is here.

Any suggestions would be great, thanks!

When you try and import an object back into Active Directory using the ldife command you need to make sure you delete the system owned attributes from the ldf file,

Open ldf file in notepad and removed objects  

uSNCreated,
uSNChanged,
objectguid,
whencreated,
whenchanged

Then using the switch -i with ldifde you would be able to import objects

example :

ldifde -i -f user.ldf

Thanks,
Abhishek

Appreciate  your post. I ended up just restoring the user from a Symantec AD backup since I was having trouble getting the user to restore through LDP.
