[Freeipa-users] IPA Backup in AWS - best practices?

What is the current best practice for backing up IPA servers? Especially
in AWS?

Given AWS strengths and weaknesses, I would love to be able to move all
of IPA data/state onto a separate drive and just snapshot it on regular
basis - but it seems that IPA data is all over the place, so it is hard
to separate it from the rest of the OS. Snapshotting entire root drive
is another option, but restoring from that is a bit of a pain, so it may
not be optimal. There is always also the plain old "tar it all up"

What do people use? What works, what does not?
