I backed up a domain in which I had created nodes and instances.

After the domain is restored from the backup, the domain fails to start. The log
file suggests the domain failed to start because no instance directories for
instances in the DAS configuration were found.

As originally designed the backup-domain command only backups up the domain
(e.g. contents of the <install dir>/domains/<domain name>). It does not backup
up any instances or nodes that also happen to be configured on the DAS.

I think in production deployments the DAS would generally not have any local
nodes or instances but I could see how a developer would like to be able to
backup the domain, nodes and instances to migrate to a new version.

I'm going to change this issue to an enhancement where backup-domain offers an
option to also backup up nodes on the DAS.
