Description

Use Backup Exec Granular Recovery Technology (GRT) to enable the restore of individual objects from Active Directory backups (not supported for Read-Only Domain Controllers)

Enables the restore of individual items from full backups of the Active Directory or ADAM/ AD LDS.

Ensure that you meet the requirements for Granular Recovery Technology.

See About requirements for jobs that use Granular Recovery Technology.

Perform consistency check before backup when using Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) snapshot provider (Windows Server 2008)

Checks snapshots for data corruption. This option applies only to snapshots that are performed by the Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Services (VSS).

Continue with backup if consistency check fails

Enables the backup job to continue even if the consistency check fails. You may want the job to continue if a backup of the database in its current state is better than no backup at all. Or you may want the job to continue if you back up a large database that may have only a small problem.

Recreate deleted objects that cannot be restored from the Active Directory Deleted Objects container

Attempts to recreate deleted objects if both of the following events occurred:

  • The objects' tombstone lifetimes have passed.

  • The objects were purged from the Active Directory Deleted Objects container.

You must use this option to restore deleted objects on a computer that runs Windows 2000.

See About recreating purged Active Directory and ADAM/AD LDS objects.
