BES disaster recovery
Posted on 2009-02-11
I am trying to put a disaster recovery in place.
I have successfully used RepliStor version 6.3 to get Exchange in a DR solution.
Does anyone know what to use for best practice for BES 4.1 for exchange?
My initial thought is in two ways
Install the live BES and configure it and add users.
Create an osql script to copy the database over to a share.
Install a second BES in my bes domain with a dummy database.
When the main BES dies, copy the database from the share to the other BES and fire it up.
Is this a good DR solution or should i go with plan B
Install BES on the first server, configure and get it running.
Turn of the first BES, install a second BES with the same name information as the first BES
Get it up and runing then shut it off, fire up the first BES and put the osql script in place.
My concern is that i want to have minimal downtime when the main BES goes down.
Anyone have any input on this, thanks
