Question about Active Directory backups.

Hello!

We are backing up our servers using 3rd party solutions, but are still able to find very recent AD backups using the repadmin /showbackup command.

The backup timestamps do not match our other backups, which tells me there is something else at play. No DC has the "Windows Server Backup"-feature installed.

How would one go about finding out what is performing these backups?

Thank you!

Kind regards,
Marcus

Hi,

If you are not using Windows backup solution ,you should check with the provider if the backup solution you are using is supported by active directory.
You can add windows backup as a second backup, it's free backup solution, just to be sure that your are covered by supported backup solution.

Hi Thameur!

Thank you for replying to me. I apologize if my initial question was a bit vague. The problem isn't that we do not have backups. The 3rd party backups are doing a great job, and are solid.

What I am inquiring about is the fact that the command repadmin /showbackup is showing very recent backups, even though there should be none. The timestamps of the backups repadmin /showbackup is showing do not match our other backups, so our 3rd party solution is not the culprit begind these backups.

Since Windows Server Backup is not installed, what other built-in services or features would be the culprit behind the backups presented by repadmin /showbackup ?

Thank you!
