Well, Active Directory MVP and well-known speaker Guido Grillenmeier from HP has taken my AD tombstone reanimation cmdlets and fashioned a very cool PowerShell script that uses the cmdlets and the new AD snapshot mounting feature in Server 2008 to not only restore deleted objects but also restore their attributes that are lost when the object is deleted. Guido is presenting an AD recovery talk at TechEd in Orlando tomorrow and the script will be featured in that talk. If you are at TechEd, I highly recommend you check out his talk.
Guido has also provided some great feedback on my tombstone reanimation cmdlets so look for a 1.1 version of them very soon!
