Hello List,
we have a running (test) AD samba4  system running successful for several month. We are now trying to add more DCs to the mix
and have a proper backup/desaster recovery strategy.

Basically I wan't to adapt the samba_backup script found in the sources to backup everything via git into our repository. I understand that the best solution would be to tar everything before commit.

In case of disaster recovery I wan't to write another script that restores everything from our repo.
With the similar technology I wan't to synchronize sysvol.

Did anyone try this already? Do you see pitfalls why this is a bad idea?
Any comments are highly appreciated.
