Shutting Down AD Services

Quick question.

I would like to write a quick script to shutdown all the services on my Domain Controller pertaining to the Active Directory. The UPS's attached to my servers only support simple signaling, so when they are shut down due to a power failure, it does so in a critical fashion.

Besides the File Replication Service, what other services need to be shutdown to stop AD properly?

Thanks for the info.

Would anything else besides Netlogon and FRS be wise to shutdown for the sake of AD integrity?

No other services need to be stopped.
What service is associated with the source NTDS ISAM in the Directory Service Log in the Event viewer?
NTDS ISAM (the directory database) is opened and maintained by the Net Logon service.
Thanks much :)
