Backing up a Domain Controller Server 2016

  • I am running some cloud backup software (Testing a few products) on my 2016 RDSH Server (which also is holding all my files in attached block storage) and doubles as a domain controller.

    Do I still need to run whatever the equivalent of ntbackup is so that sysvol and active directory database gets compacted? Not sure how much has changed. Using Solarwinds (GFIMax Backup) it does ask to backup sysvol and system state, but I am not sure that does all that is required.
