How can we backup and restore from the location C:\Windows\SYSVOL on our domain controllers? In the backup policy we have it set to do a full backup and if you browse the directory structure it shows all the contents of this folder. However, when you try to run a restore from the server it shows this folder as being empty. We have the Netbackup Client Service running on those servers as a local domain admin account. Those servers also have "Netbackup Legacy Client Service" (not sure what the difference is) which is also running with a local domain admin account. I have also tried enabling Granular Recovery and Cross mount points on the backup policy, but still having the same issue. Our Netbackup admin console is ver 8.1.2
Hi @dbarrett6 .
Can you check these articles below? It contain requirements to make backup & restore of objects in active directory, I hope this helps..

Thanks. Is there a way to recover specific files (for example a specific .admx file from within SYSVOL) or do you basically have to restore the ENTIRE Active Directory and then pull out a file from there? What I've been reading seems to indicate that you can only restore the entire thing(?)
