Active Directory Backup and Restore

Achieve effective change monitoring and quick restoration of services in Active Directory – a pivotal feature to minimize end user disruption.

LepideAuditor allows generating snapshots of the Active Directory, so that, you can restore the state of AD objects to a previously desired state. Simply browse the snapshots, identify the unwanted changes made in Active Directory and rollback them using Active Directory Restore Wizard. Get freedom from hours of fanatic efforts to find and reverse disastrous changes in Active Directory.

Why it is important to use Snapshots for AD environment?

One wrong change in security group membership or accidental deletion of an OU can create havoc in any organization. Since, all these changes are associated with Active Directory; the administrators must always stay attentive and watchful to critical changes. Any disastrous change often results in hours of and sometimes even days of stressful efforts from administrators. It is important to detect such changes and rollback them at the earliest. For this, the user needs access to information like who, when, where made the changes and what was the object status prior to these changes.



How LepideAuditor helps you to streamline Active Directory control?

It gives you the option to take periodic snapshots of an Active Directory environment. These snapshots help the administrator in easily identifying the changes made in Active Directory and facilitate him in easily reversing critical or all the changes made in Active Directory. Thus, it provides the administrator with a reliable option to recover AD objects and object attributes from Active Directory snapshots.

  • Restore State of AD Objects using Snapshots: Take regular snapshots; pick any snapshot to compare the current status with it and rollback undesirable changes selectively within minutes. You can also restore a single object state by simply right clicking on the modified object and choose to restore to previous state.
  • Restore from Tombstone: Those objects are referred as tombstone objects, which have been erased from the Active Directory environment. LepideAuditor also has a snapshot-independent feature called ‘Restore from Tombstone’. Even if you’ve installed LepideAuditor - Active Directory for the very first time or the software doesn’t have any snapshots, still it has the capability to restore the deleted objects.
  • Real-time Alerts: Configure automatic alerts to be sent out to the specified person as soon as any undesirable change occurs. Minimize detection time and avoid the need to go through Active Directory security logs.

Benefits of Snapshot Restoration:

  • Have full control over your AD environment with the ability to rollback changes without using native tools.
  • Minimize the reaction time by quick reversal of unwanted changes.
  • Take regular snapshots and use them to restore the object state to any particular state in the past.
  • Protect AD objects against malicious changes and maintain stability in the AD environment.
  • Enjoy freedom from reliance on native Active Directory Recycle Bin.
  • Restore the AD objects from the tombstone mode even when no previous snapshots exist.
  • Hands-on ability to rollback changes, prevents unplanned outage and security breaches.

In addition to offering you unmatched ability to track each change made in AD with its Active Directory Tracking feature, it also provides you unmatched power with its object state restoration feature. Effective monitoring of changes and quick restoration of services in AD is pivotal in minimizing end user disruption and providing them with best quality services.
