Task Sequence Recovery - Config Manager 2006

Recommended Posts

So, In my infinite (lack of) wisdom, I managed to accidentally delete my primary Task Sequence for my Windows 10 deployment. My server is backed up daily by a 3rd party off site tool.

Now I am aware that MDT would have the task sequences in an alternative folder and you can simply create a new task sequence and replace the unattend.xml and TS.xml to restore your task sequence. Is there a similar location or trick I can use to restore my task sequence?

 

I'm using Server 2019 and Configuration Manager 2006 and all other apps, packages, updates and drivers are still visible in the console.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

if you've deleted the task sequence then it's gone i'm afraid, you could restore the backup of your server to a vm and export the task sequence from that vm to your online server, that's what i'd do

Thanks for the response, I'll try that next.

I thought the data for the task sequence was stored in SQL? Just so I can get my head around the issue.

Ah, my SQL drive is backed up daily as part of the backup process. Could I not somehow restore or look through that? If so where would I be looking?

Definitely a lesson learned. 😥

i've no idea sorry, and i wouldn't do it that way, just restore your back up to another vm server and export the ts from there
