  1. We've recently replaced some domain controllers and have run into a problem
    with system state backups on a few of them.

    It seems like we are running into the problem described here:

    Windows 2003 SP1 security hotfixes through November
    The operating system is on C: drive
    The AD Database is on C: drive
    The Log Files are on the D: drive

    The workaround, creating an empty file and including that in your backup job
    seems to work.

    The puzzling thing is that servers built from the same procedure are
    producing different results. Another recently built domain controller is
    configured exactly the same and the backups work fine.

    I suppose that calling PSS for the hotfix is the best idea here, I'm just
    concerned that it works in one instance but not another.
