Upon restoring a domain controller to a new or isolated network in example a DR environment, the domain controller will lose access to its other domain controllers for replication. You might find you cannot start the DNS server and or Active directory services.

To force the server to start without checking for others modify the below key and reboot the server

 Add the Following reg Key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NTDS\Parameters
Value name:  Repl Perform Initial Synchronizations
Value type:  REG_DWORD
Value data: 0

You should then go into Active Directory Sites and services and remove the old Domain Controllers and Also go into the DNS server and remove any references in the Nameserver tabs for the Zones

_msdcs.domain.local

domain.local

What are the benefits of adding a Manager to a user in AD?
 
Build Organisation Charts on the fly
If you build the right structure of Managers and subordinates, in Outlook 2013 and up when you click on the user, you can see the Organization Chart of the company ( rather than building a separate one )  under Organization

In Office 365 Managers get Notifications of User deletions as well as access to the users OneDrive

When an office 365 account is deleted or the Ad Sync Item is removed ( Either by deleting the object or removing the AD Sync group from the user ) it has 30 days before it gets deleted ( Emails and Files )

The manager get notified of this at 30 days , then again at 7 days
