Hi! A FIM administrator deleted about 50 accounts from Fim application. Is it possible to restore using FIM itself or  should it be restored in AD then import into Fim by some way? I does not have an idea about the way the Fim application works so could you guys please share some information. If possible,  please share MS article related to this as I could get into the right article as of now please. Thank you,
Sam

Since the account was deleted outside of FIM, FIM has no idea of the change other than the authentication is now failing. If it was deleted within FIM a SQL database restore + bouncing

of services should restore it, else a fresh rebuild.

Hi Patrick,

Thank you for your help!

The AD recycle bin is already enabled. Fim engineer says that had deleted the accounts from Fim application which was deleted in AD so no way to restore from Fim anymore. So, I had used below command in active directory powershell to restore the accounts.

Is that way Fim application works?  If not,  how can it be restored using FIM itself.

Thank you,


Sam

Assuming FIM still has the accounts on its end and you have the AD Recycle bin enabled, the below can restore the accounts.

 

Get-ADObject -filter {SAMAccountName -like "SomeFIMPrefix*"} -includedeletedobjects | Restore-ADObject
