Best practices for Read-Only Domain Controller server backup

Badge +1

Hi All,


Any best practices from Commvault for backing up RODC server?

  • Backup as VSA with app-ware option
  • Usual FSA and AD agent level backup
  • No backup

I didn’t find any documentation on this.
So, I am looking for suggestion on the same.

The question is what are you trying to accomplish with a backup with a RODC?

I would backup the DC with the FSMO roles looking from a DR perspective. Saves you a lot of actions to get the AD up and running 🙂

VM backup should be fine, as long as it is backed up in a consistent state.

Thanks for your response @Jos Meijer.

Customer just had a query on the best practice for RODC backup if any or no backup.
I will update the same to Customer and see if this helps.
