HOW DO I BACKUP ACTIVE DIRECTORY?

Hi,

I'm getting ready to make a rather massive change to my Active Directory.  I have many users defined and a fairly large file system with permissions for those users.  I am using Veritas Backup Exec to backup the files (with permissions) but at this point, if my active directory got corrupted, and that corruption replicated to all of my AD Servers, I'd be in BIG trouble.

How do I backup the active directory?

Also - what's the process for restoring it in the event that the system crashes?
