Plan, document and test a strategy for Active Directory backups and disaster recovery. Prepare for the storms.

When disaster strikes, your chances of making a successful recovery will increase exponentially if you have planned ahead and created a solid disaster recovery (DR) strategy. A good DR methodology should include, but should not be limited to, a backup and restore process to recover granular attribute information or entire domain controllers. In addition, your plan should also test and include details to recover the entire AD forest, in the event that all DCs become collectively unavailable. A solid, tested and proven DR strategy plan can make all the difference in providing a clear path for recovery.
