    Re: Different backup methods for Active Directory.

    There is only one way to back up Active Directory -- a system state backup of the domain controller(s).
    The backup frequency will depend on how often your directory changes, but will probably be weekly or more frequently

      You need to backup both the SystemState and the System Volume to be covered.

      even though this TID talks about different hardware it is relevant on the same Hardware configuration as well, we tested and proofed to be needed and it was confirmed by a PFE.
