Would authoritative restore bring back AD mode to mixed after mode changed to native

By xp6203 ·
Microsoft says AD 2000 mode change from mixed to native is not reversable. Did anybody test if an authoritative restore would do bring the AD back to mixed mode (the backup is made before the mode change to native)?

Thanks

I didn't test it, but it sounds only reasonable that it would. I'll test it and let ya know.

Yep it does. But beware, any changes you've made in AD will be lost.

thanks for the replies.
I contact MS, they say though it's doable, but it's not supported.

It's restorable in single DC domain (tested). But not on multiple DC domain (tested), unless run authoritative restore restore on all DCs at the same time (not tested).
