Ok, we are backing up our VM DC's every 2 hours.  

Should we need to restore one from backup how long can AD be down for and will we experience problems should we restore from a 2hr backup?  Will take a minute to restore.


Should we lose a DC and not be restored within hours or days what is required to restore the DC?  I assume build a new VM and add as a DC and forcibly remove roles from AD?
