Checklist: Back Up or Restore an AD LDS Instance

Updated: December 30, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012

By default, each instance of Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) that is running on an AD LDS server stores its database file and the associated log files in an instance-specific directory. Include these files as part of the regular backup plan of your organization. You can back up the directory using Windows Server Backup or another backup utility.
