Restoring/Undeleting a GPO

Posted February 24, 2012    Morgan Holm

Have you ever needed to undelete or rollback a GPO, but realized you forgot to back it up or could not remember what changes were made to it? Well, we have had many customers with the same problem. That’s why BeyondTrust Recovery for Active Directory also supports group policy objects (GPO). When group policies are deleted or changed, PowerBroker captures the changes and versions the GPO behind the scenes—so you don’t have to. You can then use the native GPMC interface to recover (with the GPOLNKS), rollback and compare GPO versions.

PowerBroker Auditor for Active Directory also supports AD integration, DNS and ADLDS/ADAM as well. So you get the maximum coverage from a single solution.
