The problem with that is, you should never backup an individual DC, you 
should only backup the domain data. If you backup a DC and then use the 
backup to recreate a failed DC, by the time you recreate the DC, it will 
be out of sync with the other DC's and could damage the AD domain. I 
would suggest using the 'samba-tool domain backup online' tool to backup 
the domain.
