Object Recovery Wizard for Microsoft AD Server: Recovery Server

On the Recovery Server page of the wizard, set up a Microsoft Active Directory server to which objects will be recovered.


  • The ISCSI Initiator service must be running on the recovery server.

  • The vc_redist.x86.exe (v.2015) file must be installed on the recovery server. Refer to the Microsoft article for installation details.

  • Servers added using Direct Connect are not supported.

Set up a Microsoft Active Directory server the following way:

  • In the Recovery Server drop-down list, select a recovery server name.

  • In the Server IP address box, enter the IP address of the recovery server. This is necessary if the application has not detected the IP address based on the recovery server name.

  • Credentials type: Choose your preferred option and enter your respective credentials:
    • Password: Enter a username with administrative privileges for the file share entered above and your password.

    • Private key: Select your private key from the drop-down list.

  • Click the Test Connection button to test your credentials for the specified recovery server. If your credentials are correct, a checkmark appears to the right of the button.

  • Create snapshot before recovery: When selected, a snapshot of the VM will be taken if recovery fails, and the VM will be reverted to this snapshot.

  • Click Next to go to the next page of the wizard.
