Hi David,

Everything is fairly straightforward, just make sure you're using the latest Veeam B&R version and you've enabled Application-Aware Image Processing for this VM.

Thanks!

Are there any best practice documents on backing up Windows 2008R2 AD domain controllers.
Would also be interested in any feedback on restoring DCs as well.

Also, there are numerous topics discussing restore process, for example:
Veeam B&R v5 recovery of a domain controller
Domain controller restore
Restore of all dcs in a domain

Please follow these links for further reading. Thanks!

Thoughts on using Veeam to backup a domain controller

Post by snowmizer » Nov 22, 2011 3:22 pm

[merged]

I know in previous versions of VMWare it wasn't necessarily a good idea to backup and restore a Windows domain controller. Now that we have a tool like Veeam I'm wondering if this is still true. Everything I'm reading about setting up virtual labs and SureBackup point to the need to have a DC backed up using Veeam. Do people use Veeam to backup their DCs? Are there any gotchas that I would need to be aware of?

Thanks.
