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

ntbackup

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?
