Samba DC backup
« on: January 30, 2019, 10:30:36 am »
Hello all,

I am running a Zentyal 5.1 as a standalone Domain Controler for a small organization. To ensure Disaster recovery, we have a second server ready for replacement (same configuration).

I would like to know:
 - When using Zentyal built-in backup feature, is the content of the domain (Computer account, etc.) saved or not ?
- If not, how to backup the Domain and be able to restore it (on my second server) ? is there any existing tools from Samba for example ?

Thank you for your help.
