About the only way I can see you safely making a backup image before applying updates to an AD domain controller is to make the image, then download the updates, and then most importantly disconnect the DC from the network, or at least sever all links from any other DCs in the forest before applying the updates. That way if things do go south you can always restore the backup without having mucked up the rest of the forest.
I've done it on my forest, but each network segment is connected by a VPN or VLAN and there is only one DC per segment, so it would be relatively easy to segregate a DC during updates. Having more than one DC in the same AD site on the same segment would be a pain.
That wasn't "wastewater", that was Exxon's proprietary formula of Hydroxylic Acid. And any children who are found with Hyrdoxylic Acid in their bloodstream better get ready get sued by Exxon.

The only way to stop a bad guy with a grenade on an airplane is a good guy with a grenade on an airplane.
I did 110 (according to the spedometer..maxed out) in an '87 CRX.
It's I-5, the name of the game on that road is get the fuck through to where you're going.
That's probably the number 1 road around to go all out. Nothing's there and it's flat as fuck.
If I had the time for scenery and curves, I'd be on the 101.
I want to see at least some of these thugs in the upper tiers behind bars!
I'd be happy to see them eat their own dog food. Put a GPS ankle-bracelet on them and make them live on the polluted land and drink the polluted water.

Who in the world could ever possibly think it's a good idea to carry a grenade on board of a plane...
To counter the snakes, of course.

Restoring domain controllers from images is a dangerous game. Nothing like'a'split brain AD network to make your day.
You will be successful in your work.
