SMS 2003 and Disaster Recovery Site
Posted on 2008-09-29
I was wondering if anyone could give me some design advice.
On my production network I have an SMS primary site installed (Site A) and an SMS secondary site (Site B) for SMS. There are live services with workstations and servers at both sites which require managment via SMS.
I am looking to implement a DR solution at Site B in the event that Site A is no longer available. What should I do with my SMS installation ? I assume that the secondary site will not continue to function correctly without the Primary site in place - eg distribute software, perform workstation builds. In the event of DR, would I need to build a new primary site or would the secondary site be able to still function ? I assume if I build a new primary site at Site B, this would cause issues with the existing installation. What do other people do at their sites ?
Any help would be appreciated.
