Appendix: GPOADmin Backup and Recovery Procedures

GPOADmin Backup Requirements

As part of your normal disaster procedures or requirements, GPOADmin should be considered for inclusion. In the event of a computer or network failure, the GPOADmin deployment and its data can be restored if you have performed regular and distributed backups of the following:

During the initial installation of GPOADmin, you must specify where to place these two items within your environment. The configuration store can reside in either Active Directory or AD LDS. The GPO backup store can be in Active Directory, AD LDS, a network share, or on a SQL server. The recommended location is on a network share.

Each of these options has its own backup strategies and requirements and should be included in your regular backup schedule.

Restoring GPOADmin

Once you have performed the required recovery procedures listed below, simply reinstall GPOADmin, configure the services to use the recovered stores and resume the management of GPOs. For configuration details, see Configuring the Version Control server .

Any policies that were checked out, checked in, or pending approval up to the time of the last backup will be not be affected by the failure.

For information on how to backup Microsoft AD LDS see: or Microsoft TechNet.
