DPM 2012 R2 backup of 2012 R2 domain controllers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    I'm a bit confused with backup strategy for my customer domain controllers using DPM.

    I thought that best practice is BMR with System State, but I see a lot of posts that it's not necessary anymore.

    Is it ok to backup DCs just as Hyper-V VMs?

    Regards, Alexey

    This thread discussed the same topic as yours.

    System State / BMR backup vs. full VM backup

    Backup VMs is an easier way but it is still recommended to keep traditional System State backup (and SQL/Exchange if any) for different requirements.
