I ran into a problem in a test setup where a newly created Hyper-V Replica Broker wasnt able to start

 

Cluster network name resource ‘BROKER’ failed to create its associated computer object in domain ‘internal.systemcenterdemo.dk’ during: Resource online.

The text for the associated error code is: A constraint violation occurred.

Please work with your domain administrator to ensure that:
– The cluster identity ‘HVC01$’ has Create Computer Objects permissions. By default all computer objects are created in the same container as the cluster identity ‘HVC01$’.
– The quota for computer objects has not been reached.
– If there is an existing computer object, verify the Cluster Identity ‘HVC01$’ has ‘Full Control’ permission to that computer object using the Active Directory Users and Computers tool.

I recently moved the Hyper-V Servers to a new OU

opening th ecluster opbject i added Create Computer Object

And after adding the permissions everything is working.

So if you ever have to move the Hyper-V hosts to another container remember to update the security on the Cluster NamedObject

 

One of the new features in Windows Server 2012 AD is a added user interface to the AD Recycle Bin.

 

To enable the Recycle Bin the AD have to be in 2008 R2 Forest mode

Enable-ADOptionalFeature –Identity ‘CN=Recycle Bin Feature,CN=Optional Features,CN=Directory Service,CN=Windows NT,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=internal,DC=systemcenterdemo,DC=dk’ –Scope ForestOrConfigurationSet –Target ‘internal.systemcenterdemo.dk’

Find a object to delete

image

And go into Active Directory Administrative Center Deleted Objects and there you can recover the object

image

If you have deleted a OU with Users , you cant recover the user directly

image

If you don’t want the OU restored you can use Restore To

image

Or recover the OU and then recover the subitems
