Backup VM Domain Controller with Netbackup

Hi,

      I've 2 additional Domain Controllers that are running in Virtual Machines (VMware 3.5). What is the proper solution in order to take them backup with Netbackup? Can I take them backup with snapshot or I'm needing Netbackup Windows Agent and backup via Lan?

Thanks,

It's not recommended to use any flashbackup method for domain controllers as you have no granular restore method to restore Shadow Copy Components. With flashbackup it's all or nothing.

Use the classic Netbackup windows agent method.

Hi,

Client is going to install new AD 1 x on physical and some on VM servers.

They need 2 x DC system State and E\: drive backups.

I will be implimenting NetBackup 7.1

I mentioned that we utilize SNAP where possible as part of the backups.

They now referred to this note - indicating that I cannot do SNAP.

What is the best way forward with this environment?

Thank you

Willie
