Activate the new AD recycle bin feature for no-cost additional protection. Prepare for the big OOPS.

Prior to Windows Server 2008 R2, the ability to recover deleted objects existed, but it usually required taking a DC offline and performing multiple authoritative restores, leaving the object stripped of most attribute details. With Windows Server 2008 R2, you can enable and leverage the AD Recycle Bin to restore AD objects with all attributes in their entirety to the same state they were in just prior to deletion. This includes group membership. Using the recycle bin feature can help reduce directory services downtime by improving your ability to recover accidentally deleted AD objects without many of the previous challenges and deficiencies.

They have collected the following best practices from their network operations centers for making Active Directory run more smoothly in 2012. These tips cover a lot of ground, from consolidation down to smaller items, such as using the new recycle bin feature. Start small and tackle each of these items gradually. This will enable you to stay current with required fixes, while monitoring the health, performance and functionality of your AD enterprise for smooth sailing into the new year.
