Hello, does anyone know how to enact the feature Windows 2008 R2 recycle bin for Active Directory? Sometimes, I delete files or fields from Active directory, but I don’t know where to retrieve it.
How To Install The Feature Windows 2008 R2 Recycle Bin For Active Directory
Hi, installation of the Windows 2008 R2 recycle bin for Active Directory can be done through PowerShell, whereas for the higher version of the Windows server, it can be done through GUI. The two requirements for enabling this feature are:
a. Active Directory forest, which has all domain controllers, and they all should be running in Windows Server 2008 R2 only.
b. Active Directory forest’s functional level also must be Windows Server 2008 R2.
Now let’s see the command-lines to work this process.
1. Run PowerShell as an administrator in Server 2008 R2.
2. To confirm which server is primary, we use the command to run as “Get-ADForest | Set-ADForestMode -ForestMode Windows2008R2Forest”.
3. Now type “Enable-ADOptionalFeature ‘Recycle Bin Feature’ -Scope ForestOrConfigurationSet -target ‘test.local’ “.
