System state backup does not include CA private keys in Windows Server 2008 or in Windows Server 2008 R2

        Assume that you use the Windows Server Backup feature to perform a system state backup on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2. The computer has the Active Directory Certificate Services (AD CS) server role installed. In this situation, the certification authority (CA) private keys are not included in the system state backup image. Therefore, the CA private keys are unavailable when the system state is restored, and this leads to an outage of the public key infrastructure (PKI).
