    Fred is the network administrator of an engineering company. The company is using Windows 2000 Active Directory as the directory service. In order to support the number of users and to provide fault tolerance, there are a total of six Windows 2000 domain controllers in the network.
    Fred has been asked to formulate a backup strategy using the Windows 2000 Backup utility. What should Fred do to ensure the Windows 2000 Active Directory database is backed up on all six Windows 2000 domain controllers? Select the best method.


    A) Create a backup on any Windows 2000 domain controllers which include System State data.

    B) Create a backup on all Windows 2000 domain controllers which include System State data.

    C) Create a backup on all Windows 2000 domain controllers which include %systemroot% tds folder.

    D) Create a backup on all Windows 2000 domain controllers which include %systemroot%sysvol folder.

    E) Create a backup on any Windows 2000 domain controllers which include %systemroot% tds and %systemroot%sysvol folders.

    I'll go with B. The system state data will be what you need backed up if you have to restore a crashed DC. Also, with the on-board Windows backup utiltity, you can only arrange to back up the server it is on. There's no option for scheduling the backup of multiple servers as you'd get with something like Veritas. That's my answer and I'm sticking to it. :wink:

    Correct answer is: B

    Explanation: You can use Backup to back up the system state data. If the system state data on a computer has been backed up and that same computer system fails, you can rebuild the computer with the original Windows 2000 compact disc and the system state data.
    The system state data contains the information to restore the operating system to its pre-failure state. The system state data includes the following system components:

    -- Registry
    -- Component Services class registration database
    -- System startup files
    -- Certificate Services database
    -- Active Directory™ directory service
    -- Sysvol folder

    In Windows 2000 Professional, the system state includes the registry, the Component Services class registration database, and system startup files. In Windows 2000 Server operating systems, the system state data also includes the Certificate Services database (if the computer is a certificate server), Active Directory, and the Sysvol folder (if the computer is a domain controller).

    System State Data cannot be shared among domain controllers.
