This nice, easy tool allows for the online backup of eDirectory to a specified location, so the file system backup can consume the files.
Steps the script takes:
- Starts a log file
- Cleans up backup files so that only 2 backups exist on the file system at any point.
- Backs up NICI Registry entries.
- Backs up NICI directory.
- Sets Roll Forward Log location (if specified in command line).
- Backs up eDirectory.
Please read the top of the ndsbackup.vbs script for more information.
