I have a Windows 2003 domain and Windows 2003 domain controller.
I accidentally deleted the whole container. The container contains some child
group object and some
serviceConnectionPoint object. I am looking for a way to undelete it.
I come across this article, which seems to imply that it's possible to restore a just-deleted AD object by reanimating the tombstone object.
I googled a bit and found ADRestore. I tried it and it could successfully restore my child
container objects and
group object but not the
serviceConnectionPoint objects. It looks like it cannot even find any tombstone objects with the objectClass
serviceConnectionPoint. Is it a limitation of the tool or is it a limitation in AD? Is there any other commercial tools that can help restoring the deleted AD object reliably?
