Backup and Restore Instructions for the DirSync Database

The Windows Azure Active Directory Sync tool (DirSync) is used to provision user accounts from Windows Active Directory on-premises to Azure Active Directory in the cloud. DirSync will synchronize changes to user accounts made on-premises to the cloud so that cloud users have access to directory information and can sign-in. This document describes how to backup and later restore the database and encryption keys required for a DirSync install. This will reduce the time to resynchronize user accounts from your on-premises Active Directory to Windows Azure Active Directory when there has been a failure of the previous DirSync installation.
