How to perform Authoritative Restore of Active Directory Objects – 2012 R2

In the old post, we learned the steps to perform non-authoritative restore. In this post, we’ll learn the steps to recover deleted OU and users by performing Authoritative restore of System state backup on Windows Server 2012 R2.

Let’s assume a scenario in which we have two Domain Controllers i.e. DC01 and DC02, and we have taken System State backup from first Domain Controller i.e. DC01. After taking System State backup, Administrator has deleted “Sales” OU by mistake and not we have to restore the deleted OU by using Authoritative restore on Windows Server 2012 R2.
