  • Snapshots and USN bubbles

    I am just reading that you can now take snapshots with Windows 2012 Active Directory, with no issues when rolling it back.

    I was just wondering: What was the issue before, with 2000, 2003 and 2008 Active Directory ?. I am reading it is all about the USN bubbles.

    If I roll back a domain controller to a copy of active directory from a week ago, couldn't the other AD Domain controllers say: "Hey,it seems that you have been offline for a week, you are not up to date, here are the new changes." ?

    It seems like a great thing to be able to take snapshots now! , even when I guess that should not stop you from backing up the servers.

        Reversion of snapshots were already possible with W2k8 ? . I thought it was only possible with 2012.
