Active Directory (AD) has been a key application in most environments that provides central user-management and authentication. One of the greatest aspects of AD is that it provides multi-master replication, meaning you can set up multiple domain controllers and the controllers will sync with each other when changes have been made.

One of the key challenges with AD is the backup and recovery process. In this white paper, the main aspects for successful recovery are discussed. An important take-away with this, as with every recovery plan, is that you should test all scenarios for your specific case.

First discussed, is what you should consider when backing up AD. SureBackup is discussed next, so you can automatically verify your AD backups. However, for AD, there are also some great things going on under the hood of the SureBackup engine. In addition, item-level recovery with Veeam Explorer for AD is explored.

You’ll also learn:

  • Windows 2008 R2 and vmxnet3
  • Which server is holding your FSMO roles
  • Which servers are acting as a Global Catalog Sequential backup of AD
  • How to enable Application-Aware Image Processing
  • Recovery of AD items using Veeam Explorer for Active Directory
  • And much more!
