I have two adam instances installed in a domain. The OS they are running on\nis Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2. I have been performing NT backups of the\nentire "C" drive where ADAM is installed as well as a system state backup of\nthe machine. I am getting Event ID 2089 warning messages in the ADAM event\nlogs that the partitions need to be backed up. I opened up a case with MS\nabout this in February of 08 and they told me it was a bug with the VSS\nwriter updating the dsasignature attribute. My question is if I continue to\nget these messages the user objects in ADAM will not tombstone? Is that\ncorrect? I.e. If Adam was never backed up would it start tombstoning objects?
