Can I ask for the best practices analyzer - if it only states severity "informational", - does that mean you are compliant with the best practice? For example it just says "

"The directory partition xyz on the domain controller xyz should have been backed up within the last 8 days"

But as this is listed as severity informational - I dont understand if thats telling us there is a problem or if we are ok on this specific finding?

Hi

Best practice is to backup your Active Directory daily, and if not possible, at least weakly (8 days).

I appreciate that. But what I wondered, if ADBPA tool says this information is "informational", it doesnt really indicate whether you are backing up or you arent. It doesnt say if its a pass or a fail. It doesnt say either way.

It only says you havent backed up in the last 8 days. So my guess is it is not configured to backup.

It is a default rule: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd723688(v=ws.10).aspx

but it just says "should" not "has not been", so again I am unsure if its reporting a pass, or an issue?
