Hi alisafia,

If you have configured DNS for Active Directory Integrated Zone
then you only need to backup the system state.

Otherwise, you should backup the following folder and its contents.
c:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts



Cheers!

What if the Backup Database under WINS is greyed out? How do I automate this? I have already automated DNS because I am backing up AD System State everyday.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

What is your operatin system? If you use ntbackup with Volume Shadow Services on Windows 2003, which is default setting, all databases are backed up automatically.
