Veritas Backup Exec 9.1- Active directory backup

By castro_alex23 ·
I have never used Veritas to backup servers or nor I have much experience with it. I was wondering if anyone know how to back up your Active Directory using Veritas Backup Exec Version 9.1? Any help would be appreciated. The operating system is Windows XP if that helps. Thanks.
