Hi All

I have just upgraded my box to windows 2003 server and all is working fine. I have around 250 users connected to the same.  I have a one Dell Server presentl and another clone as a DCs.

I need a solution or procedure to backup the AD data to my tape drive, so in case my hardware fails or in case of any corruption I am able to restore the same to another system.  

I need to test the above procedure too to avoide any hangups in case of a actual disaster.

Thanks

Johnson

I would recommend gettting Backup Exec, this will do the backups you want to tape. The only other alternative is Arc Serve which I am not a big fan of. Nt Backup will also the do the job, but I would stay away if you can afford Veritas. My guess if you can afford a proper DR server and site the cost won't be a problem.
