Experts!

What would you say would be a best practice for backing up terminal servers?  I have 3 terminal servers servicing 2 different remote offices.  With 3 different flavors of Windows.

Terminal 1 is Windows Server Enterprise 2003 R2
Terminal 2 is Windows Server 2008 Enterprise
Terminal 3 is Windows Server 2008 Enterprise R2

I have file shares built for all the users on the terminal servers,  that map to the file server, which is already in the production backup process.  However, I have nothing configured for the terminal servers themselves from a backup standpoint....

I've heard different opinions, but wanted to get the first wind from the experts! :-)

Thanks!

I personally use Backup Exec 2010 with remote agents on my terminal servers.

What is it specifically that you back up?  everything?  is there a best practice for backing up certain things aside from system state?
