Hi - I am running a single forest domain and a domain controller I have needs to be backed up and restored on a newer server. This server is Windows Server 2019 on a Citrix XEN VM host. What is the best way to backup and restore? I also have DHCP, DNS, GPOs and printers on this server. I appreciate all your help.

Thank you!
