I have a domain controller which is also a DNS server.
It has some zones which are AD integrated zones and some primaries and some secondaries.
I would like to use NTbackup to backup Active Directory, DNS ( AD Integrated zones, Primary zones, secondary zones).
I wonder if I need to backup just System states and this will incluse everything or I need to backup another folder.
I also want to know if system 32 part of System state.
The botom line is if the server crashes I will still be able to bring back the DOmain controller with AD and DNS working as they used to.
If you know about DHCP, I also want to know if backing up System State will include DHCP
