    Powershell Script to backup Domain Controllers

    Is there a ps script which can be used to backup AD System State Data on a
    daily basis and a weekly full system backup. If yes, can this script be
    scheduled to run daily?

    Craig,

    It would be simpler if you just used Scheduled Tasks with ntbackup (2003) or
    wbadmin (2008). Here are the links to the syntax:
    wbadmin
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...15(WS.10).aspx

    ntbackup
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../bb490952.aspx

    Can you be more specific about whether this is for Server 2003, Server 2008
    or Server 2008 R2? I don't know if the command-line utilities will be able
    to do this...

    Also, I've not done sys admin for years, I believe the mechanism as of
    Server 2008 is to do system snapshots. Will that do for your weekly full
    backup?
