Samba PDC disaster recovery
Posted on 2005-03-07
Hi all, i posted this question to samba-lists, searched the Official Howto and the Samba 3 by Example guide, along with some googling, but no straight answer.
I'm going to setup a fresh installed Nt domain for a customer. It'll have only one server (Fedora CoreIII) and no more than 15 users, i've got no problems setting up the domain, what i'm concerned is a disaster recovery situation, in the event of a fatal hardware failure.
I'd like to know exactly what should I backup in case i need to restore the configuration to a different machine and put ASAP the domain up again.
No problem regarding the Domain SID, and the smb.conf file.
What about users, what should i backup in order to not having to create them again, and the group mappings?
PS1: As this is a small network i will not use LDAP.
PS2:I use unix passwd sync.
