11. Click the Finish button and then click OK. The restore job begins and you see a Restore progress indicator. Once the restoration is complete, click Close. Just as you can perform a backup job without the wizard, you can also restore a backup job without the wizard. As with backup, you will probably find this option faster. The following steps show you how to perform a restore job without using the Restore Wizard. 1. In Directory Services Restore Mode and when logged on as an administrator, click Start Programs Accessories System Tools Backup. 2. Click the Restore tab, shown in Figure 12-11. Expand the Media and select your System State Data backup job. You can also use the drop-down menu at the bottom of the window to restore the files to the original or alternate location. Click the Start Restore button.

Once you complete the restore job, you see a message telling you that you need to reboot your computer. Once you bring your domain controller back online, your Active Directory database will be updated through replication with other domain controllers.

An important reason for backing up your Active Directory database is the possibility of the need for an authoritative restore. An authoritative restore enables you to restore an Active Directory backup and to prevent the restored changes from being overwritten due to domain controller replication. In fact, an authoritative restore marks the restore job as authoritative and its data is replicated to other domain controllers, overwriting their existing data.

Consider an example. Suppose you have a container that holds all of the printer objects on your network. You accidentally delete the entire container and all of the objects, and before you can do anything about it, the change is replicated to all domain controllers. Now, no domain controller holds this container or any of your printer objects. Fortunately, however you back up your System State Data each day. You restore your container and printer objects and bring your domain controller back online. However, you notice that in a short time, the container and objects are gone again. Why Your restore job is older than the current Active Directory database residing on online domain controllers. You can restore the container and objects, but each time you bring the domain controller back online, replication will overwrite the older copy and delete the container and objects again. As you can see, this could be a hopeless situation. This is the purpose of an authoritative restore. You can restore your last backup job that will replace your container and printer objects and then use an authoritative restore so that your restored objects are replicated to the other domain controllers. To use an authoritative restore, boot your server into Directory Service Restore Mode and then perform the restore with the Backup utility as described in the previous section. Then, before rebooting, you use the NTDSUTIL command-line utility to perform an authoritative restore.
