copy the information store and transaction log to a stand by server
Posted on 2006-07-23
Hi...we have a cold standby Exchange 2003 (same configuration but different hardware than the production exchange server). We are wondering if in the case of the live exchange server has the problem, as long as the information stores and transaction logs are accessbile, could we simply copy these files over to the cold standby server, and we can put the cold standy server in production in less than 30 minutes.
Is that right? what needs to be done to have this switching process smoothly?
