Backup AD Structure, Passwords

Last Modified: 2012-05-11

I am trying to see if there is a way, besides using system restore, to backup my AD. I want to push this to an online backup and want to keep it smaller. I seem to remember maybe there is a way to do this with VBScript, maybe I am wrong.

Any ideas are appreciated. Hoping to result in a small file that would allow me to import users and passwords back into a brand new AD controller in the event of a fire or something.
