A backup that includes all critical volumes so that the recovered system is bootable.

An Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) mechanism that enables AD LDS to accept bind requests from applications that want to use AD LDS as the application data store. Through AD LDS bind redirection, AD LDS redirects bind requests to AD DS based on the contents of a proxy object that represents an Active Directory security principal. This proxy object can be augmented to store additional data related to the security principal that is specific to the application.
