Invocation ID in Active Directory

Hello all,

Hope this post finds you in good health and spirit.

This post is regarding what is an invocation ID and how it increase ?

An invocation ID is an identification number that uniquely identifies a database within AD. Invocation IDs change during the restore process to make sure replication is consistent.

It will only change when an Active Directory restore happens. In a restore process, it will change; the otherwise, the existing domain controllers will identify it as an existing domain controller and will not replicate the data over.

Invocation IDs are also important to fix update sequence number (USN) rollbacks because a successful fix involves resetting Invocation IDs for the AD database. If these numbers aren’t reset, there will be gaps between the restored domain controller and other domain controllers throughout Active Directory.

So, that’s all in this blog. I will meet you soon with next stuff .Have a nice day !!!
