  • Active Directory recycle bin (forest function level "2008 R2")

    Hello, is it possible to restore deleted objects with Hyena in the future ? we just activate this feature and looking for a GUI instead of powershell.

    Yes, Hyena has had AD object restoration since this capability was added in Windows 2003. The 'newer' Recycle Bin in Windows 2008 does provide additional restoration capabilities, which are also supported. Let me know which version of Hyena you are using, but most any recent version will support this capability.

    The 'Restore Deleted Objects' function is available by right clicking on an Active Directory domain and selecting "View Deleted Objects". From there, you can see everything that has been deleted, then right click on a deleted item and restore. You will need to select a container to restore to, as I think that is lost, but as far as I know, most common AD attributes are restored.

    Please let us know if you have any questions and thanks for using Hyena !
