Jim,
what particular feature of ntdsutil are you referring to? You can use it to
create source for IFM and create snapshots - but neither is considered a
replacement for the regular backup...

You need to use a certified application for backing up a DC, which is what I
am guessing you are referring to since you referred to ntdsutil. NTDSUtil
is not for backing up a DC or Windows.

Ntdsutil doesn't have a backup function, per se, but it will backup the
database during defragmenting, or you can move the database, etc, but as
indicated by Paul and Marcin, it doesn't have a backup feature such as
NTBackup, or better, a third party backup that will backup the System State
data, which the AD database is part of.

Hello Jim,

As already stated from the others, you need a real backup software like windows
backup, ntdsutil let's create you an IFM or snapshot but is no solution as
a backup software.
