You are restoring Active Directory databases to a network share outside of your domain.

Restore fails with:

Error: 0x4001A
Path = "\\?\UNC\XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX\share\Drive(C)\Windows\sysvol\domain\Policies\{01F10AEA-AEC8-4A07-9D1D-660342BA956A}\GPT.INI",
Hints = 1 (0x1),
$module = "ad_agent_vs_50141"

Access to the file is denied.

Permissions conflict. During recovery of Active Directory databases, recovered folders have specific permissions to allow access to domain users only. Since the backup is located on network share, the recovery process has to impersonate the user that has access to share; since the share is not in the domain, the share user does not have access to the recovered files and thus recovery fails.


You need to either recover the databases to a local folder or to a network share in the domain and use domain administrator credentials.
