Azure ARS Service - provide flat file restore of SYSVOL folder in case of authoritative restore
Azure ARS is unable to replicate a domain controller without virtualization protection mechanisms causing issues with SYSVOL share. Easy fix to toggle BURFLAG and perform authoritative restore, however, an accessible flat file backup of SYSVOL folder would be a valuable thing to have.
Yes. Best practice would be to have an always replicating domain controller, however, we are talking about DR. There are instances whereby you would want to replicate to dedicated / sandboxed Azure subscription [thus flat file backup of SYSVOL would be valuable from within Azure ARS service portal].
