Yes. I saw that already. So, if we are doing schema update and the only option for recovery would be Forest Recovery.....Do we need to do an Authoritative AD restore of schema master and then non-authoritative or authoritative AD restore of DC for each domain? Is there anything else?  Did anyone had to recover forest after schema update went wrong? Could you please share your experience? The link you posted covers everything - bare metal restore, full restore, system state....I need more specific steps that we need to perform for Forest recovery when updating schema from 2008 R2 to 2012. We have 2003 and 2008 DCs. WE wont be doing bare metal restore. We will be using system state native MS backups. Thank you very much.
