  • Backing up the AD

    Hello all

    I'm referring to the link below:
    https://www.petri.com/delete_failed_dcs_from_ad

    Should a backup of the AD configuration be taken prior to using NTDSUtil?
    If yes, what exactly is needed backed up?
    thanks

    No absolute requirement to, but safest to either back up AD (a system state backup on any domain controller will do it) or airgap a "spare" DC so you can, if needed, use it for an authoritative restore.
