I would check and make sure that your Active Directory replication is working properly...

repadmin /replsum
repadmin /showrepl
repadmin /bridgeheads
DCDiag /v

Also check the Managed List Options for this container. Depending on how many items are displayed might not be showing the user that you want to restore.

- Open ADAC
- (Top right corner) click Manage
- Select Management List Options
- Make sure that you have a value that is relatively high

Also try connecting to another domain controller and see if the objects exists.

If you can see/restore the objects via powershell then this is more than likely a viewing issue in the ADAC.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I agree with Will Szymkowski, it sounds to me you have some type of filter in place on your view. Have you tried it to use RSAT tools from a workstation or another DC?

Oh I found that on the server I was trying to undelete has domain/forest functional level is server 2008.
That is why I was able to undelete objects using powershell but not from ADAC.

as per the link shared by @vincent Burton

The minimum functional level should be 2008 R2 for ADAC to undelete.

Undelete through ADAC is working fine on other networks where forest functional level is 2012 R2.

I am confused on how this was corrected because domain and forest functional level is not server specific .

I have two saperate network isolated with each other. Thus two forests. One is having functional level as 2008 and another as 2012 R2.

Sorry If my earlier words created the confusion.
