If Active Directory Recycle Bin is enabled in a managed domain, the Web Interface provides access to the Deleted Objects container that holds the deleted objects from that domain. On the Tree tab in the Browse pane, the Deleted Objects container appears at the same level as the domain object, under the Active Directory node. If multiple managed domains have Active Directory Recycle Bin enabled, then a separate container is displayed for each domain. To tell one container from another, the name of the container includes the domain name (for example, MyDomain.MyCompany.com - Deleted Objects).
When you select the Deleted Objects container, the Web Interface lists all the deleted objects that exist in the corresponding domain. The list can be sorted or filtered as appropriate to locate particular objects (see Managing the list of objects earlier in this document). If you click an object in the list, a menu appears that displays all actions you can perform on that object.
To locate deleted objects, you can perform a search in the Deleted Objects container:
To view a list of objects that were deleted from a particular Organizational Unit (OU) or Managed Unit (MU), you can use the View or Restore Deleted Objects command. The command opens a page that lists the deleted objects that were direct children of the corresponding OU or MU at the time of deletion.
To view a list of objects that were deleted from a particular OU or MU
The Web Interface lists the objects that were deleted from the OU or MU you selected. The list can be sorted or filtered as appropriate to locate particular objects (see Managing the list of objects earlier in this document).
|NOTE: The View or Restore Deleted Objects command is also available on domain and container objects.|
To restore a deleted object
The Restore Object dialog box prompts you to choose whether the deleted child objects (descendants) of the deleted object should also be restored. The Restore child objects check box is selected by default, which ensures that the Restore command applied on a deleted container restores the entire contents of the container.
|NOTE: When restoring a deleted object, ensure that its parent object is not deleted. You can identify the parent object by viewing properties of the deleted object: the canonical name of the parent object, preceded with the “Deleted from:” label, is displayed beneath the name of the deleted object on the property page for that object. If the parent object is deleted, you need to restore it prior to restoring its children because deleted objects must be restored to a live parent.|
