DFSR data should be backed up via the Shadow Copy Components.
Clustered servers should be backed up via their Cluster Resource Name.
Since the clustered resource name does not show shadow copy components, both of these best practices can not be followed.
There is an alternate way to backup the DFSR data and that is using the share name. The DFS shares will show under the cluster name. Selecting the shares will allow for the data to be backed up, however the security information on the folders will not be obtained. This should not be considered a disaster recovery solution. For disaster recovery, run an occasional backup of the shadow copy components on the active node in the cluster.
