Module Review and Takeaways
Question: For what purposes do you use the AfterBackup.Bat file?
Answer: You use the AfterBackup.Bat file to copy additional files from your Configuration
Manager implementation, archive a backup to a different location, and perform other validation
tests.
Question: What factors determine how frequently you should perform a backup?
Answer: The frequency with which you perform backups depends on several factors, including
the number of configuration changes that you made to the environment since the last backup
and whether you are backing up a stand-alone primary site or a hierarchy. If you want to back up
a hierarchy, you can use an older backup to perform recovery because the latest configuration
changes transfer from other sites through replication.
Question: Under what circumstances should you perform unscheduled backups?
Answer: You should perform unscheduled backups whenever you make a significant change to
your Configuration Manager hierarchy, such as adding a new site.
Question: How can you minimize data loss when you do not perform backups?
Answer: When you do not perform backups, you can minimize data loss by ensuring that you
have a Configuration Manager hierarchy that contains at least two sites.
