AD/GPO backup/restore

1. Are there any specific best practice’s when it comes to backups of AD/Group Policy? Or best practice reference documents that can be referred to?

2. What tools do you use for the backup/restore process for AD/Group Policy?

3. And having not admin’d servers myself, how could an auditor/manager prove that you have tested your restore process? What evidence would there be that the restore has been tested and worked fine? If any? I don’t like the process of taking peoples word for it, as its likely they wont have tested it at all.

4. How practical is it for them to oversee a restore of AD? Is it a quick process or several hours’ worth?

5. Have you had to restore your AD/domain controllers? If so what reason lead to the restore, and is the requirement to restore pretty common or very rare?

Thanks

Have any of you ever had issues with AD backups failing. AD restores failing?

And did you get to the bottom of how the backup/restores failed?

Just out of interest...
