    I am running Server 2012 R2 and a Microsoft VM for all local documents at our church.

    For best protection should I do which of these (or another suggestion you may have):
    1. Run VM backup as an image for the entire VM?
    or
    2. Run Server backup as file backup?

    My active directory and other information with all local documents from the church's computers are on the VM.

    Thank you.

    Hi again, !
    There are 2 similar approaches that work best for AD DC’s:
    1. Image based backup from the guest machine.
    2. VM backup from the host.

    Pick the one you like more. Or pick depending in the type of licenses that you have purchased
    Thank you!
