Domain controllers messages

Last Modified: 2012-08-13
I have 2 Domain controllers (main and backup) the servers are only tasked with DNS, DHCP and AD. Started seeing the following messages in the applications log.

lsass (544) A database location change was detected from 'C:\Windows\NTDS\ntds.dit' to '\\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy97\Windows\NTDS\ntds.dit'.

lsass (544) The database engine has begun replaying logfile \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy97\Windows\NTDS\edb000EF.log.

lsass (544) The database engine has begun replaying logfile \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy97\Windows\NTDS\edb.log.

lsass (544) The database engine has successfully completed recovery steps.

these are not reported as errors but as information events.. I'm just concerned why I'm seeing this?

Can someone explain why this is happening?
