Monitoring Active Directory backups with MOM

Tomek has hinted me with this KB article:  http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=914034

You can use it to setup monitoring of AD backups (system state backups on domain controllers) with MOM. I have not yet had the time to test it out, but it should be pretty straightforward:

¾     Configure the threshold in registry on the DCs where you do regular backups

¾     Create an alert rule to alert when an event of ID 2089 from NTDS Replication shows up to notify AD administrators that AD backup has not been done within the threshold days window
