LDAP backup and restore
Imagine this – you just need one single LDAP object to restore from backup. With Bacula Enterprise’s Directory Server technology, this becomes reality. This backup of LDAP allows you to restore any backed up object. Even more, you can relocate objects or decide to restore them with some constraints: always, never, if the object is newer or older!
Backup Active Directory
Microsoft standards can be very specific and the Microsoft Active Directory Server backup is no exception. For instance, MS AD queries are different compared to the standard LDAP ones, and the code is specific as well. However, Bacula Enterprise offers unique technologies to handle each environment, including Tombstone recovery. Now it is not necessary to manage specific fields and directory server structures and instead rely on Bacula Enterprise solution for AD backup.
With this feature you are now ready to backup Active Directory on Windows 2007, 2008, 2012, 2012R2 and higher versions, connecting it through the standard AD network protocol.
How OpenLDAP backup works
Simply set up the right configuration parameters such as LDAP URI, the base distinguish name (base DN), the backup LDAP user and password, and you are ready to go.
