  • Yes it should be possible.  However, keep in mind that depending on if and how you do delta imports from your MAs, a full import may be required after restoring from backup.  This is especially true for AD and ADAM MAs. 

    Also, if you are using password synchronization you may need to re-enable it after restoring from backup.  The sync engine doesn't automatically enable it when restoring from a backup to give you a chance to decide whether passwords in the process of synchronizing at the time of the backup should still go through.
