Backup and Restore SCOM 2012

I would like to know how to backup SCOM 2012, for instance using Netback or BackupExec,
I believe SCOM 2012 requires back of Operation Database and may be also Operations Warehouse Database,
it also requires IIS metabase, RMS Encryption keys, Management Packs, Files and Registery.

so how does Netback backup or other third party products get access to the components I stated above, in order to back them up. ?

Any help will be very much appreciated.

I have seen that link before I posted my question.
I know that it can be done by backing up :
Operation Database,IIS metabase, RMS Encryption keys, Management Packs, Files and Registery.

I was trying to find out if any third party backup solution has a plugin, that enables backup operator just to check boxes of components to back up.

If you do not have third party backup, you will have to  go to IIS  to configure IIS metabase backup, then go to SCOM console and export management packs to a folder, then go backup the Register keys, then RMS Encryption keys, that 's a lot to do manually....

I know that with third party backup, for instance you just check the box for System State of a specific server, then the registry keys will get backed up, but am not sure about other components of SCOM how to backup them up with third party.....There might be a plug in....
