  • Dear Ritesh,

    You might have to perform an authoritative restore if an administrator inadvertently deletes an organizational unit (OU) containing a large number of users. If you restore the server from tape, the normal replication process would not restore the inadvertently deleted OU. Authoritative restore allows you to mark the OU as authoritative and force the replication process to restore it to all the other domain controllers in the domain.
