How many times has DNS been the problem? Well, Veeam Explorer for Active Directory’s Compare with Production capability may be a way to help you see if there have been changes in DNS. This is so easy to use, check out this video explaining how this works:


You can also watch my Veeam Live session on Application recovery as well (have to register there however)​​​​

Great video, Rick! Compare with Production and Show changed objects only features are true game-changers for anyone who has had to perform restores like this in the past without these capabilities.

Could go so far, Rasmus, as to say it is a *troubleshooting* tool - in addition to a recovery tool…

 

Scenario: Something is wrong, you don’t know what → See DNS changes to give nice info...

Hi Rick, will this restore the entries in the reverse DNS lookup zone as well?
