Refer to the sections below for information on how to import recovered objects in Active Directory.

Importing Non-User Objects

If Active Directory objects or containers you have recovered do not contain “User” objects, follow the steps below to import the objects in Active Directory:

  1. On the Active Directory machine, run command line as an administrator.
  2. Run the following command: ldifde -i -k -f filename -j logfolder, where “filename.ldif” is the path to the recovered ldif file, and “logfolder” is the path to the folder where import logs will be saved.

Importing User Objects

If you have recovered one or more “User” objects or if you have recovered containers that include one or more “User” objects, follow the steps below to import the objects in Active Directory:

  1. On the Active Directory machine, run command line as an administrator.
  2. Enable a secure LDAP connection on the Active Directory machine. For more information, you can refer to http://gregtechnobabble.blogspot.com/2012/11/enabling-ldap-ssl-in-windows-2012-part-1.html
  3. Run the following command: ldifde -i -t 636 -f filename.ldif -k -j logfolder, where “filename.ldif” is the path to the recovered ldif file, and “logfolder” is the path to the folder where import logs will be saved.
  4. After importing one or more users, you may need to verify password options via user logon. Before that you should edit group policy by adding imported users. For more details, you can refer to http://zamemon.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-sign-in-method-youre-trying-to-use.html
