Backup 2 DCs in same job

Veeam Logoby burak » Sun Apr 09, 2017 2:02 pm


We have two domain controllers on two different Hyper-V hosts. Those are the only domain controllers in the network.
I want to use one backup job to backup both domain controller. I enabled application-aware processing and used domain administration credentials to backup those DCs.

Can I add *both* DCs in *one* backup job without getting any problems with e.g. DFS replication or AD consistency?
Or do I have to use two different backup jobs to backup them?

Best regards

Hello Burak,
Having two DCs in one job should not cause any problems. Give it a try.
