  • Undelete AD objects

    I'm attempting to undelete a user object but the process fails. When I specify the Users container in which I want to restore the user object, I get the following error message:

    "Unable to find properly formatted undelete object path for 'CN=User Name\DEL:192e9534-dfe5-4a83-98bd=bf9c817440c0,CN=Deleted Objects,DC=domain,DC=com'."

    Please help.

    Are you attempting to use this function on a Windows 2000 domain ? It would appear that the path does not follow the right convention for a deleted object, which is usually the case for a Windows 2000 domain.

    The / should be followed by a 0A, as shown here:

      Re: Undelete AD objects

      Thank you for your reply. I am using Hyena on a Windows 2000 domain. I'm trying to restore a deleted object using the Hyena 6.5 administration utility. When I right-click on the deleted user object and choose Undelete, I'm prompted to enter the LDAP name for the container in which I want to restore the object. I enter CN=Users,DC=domain,DC=com, and when I click OK, I get the error message I quoted in my previous post. Is Hyena unable to restore deleted objects? Or am I doing something wrong?

      Thanks so much for your help.

        The undelete is performed by Active Directory, and not Hyena. Windows 2000 apparently does not format the undelete path correctly, so this function appears to be a Windows 2003-only feature, which we did successfully test it on. It appears that Microsoft does not support undeletion on Windows 2000 domains.
