Disaster recovery - Windows NT/2000
Posted on 2002-04-08
I'm trying to write a disaster recovery plan for our network. I'm trying to figure out how I could restore a server in the event of a fire or some other catastrophic event. If we had to restore all of our data to a new machine, would ERD's in Windows NT and the ERD and registry backup from WINNT\REPAIR in Windows 2000 help to restore the server? Or would the fact that we're using new hardware in the servers make these things useless in that instance? If these things are useless, I imagine we'd have to make sure we keep a copy of a document which listed share permissions for all the servers offsite so we could manually set those after our recovery.
