I need to seed an existing database for use with SCR. The database is too large to copy over my WAN to a remote site. I am not clear on the proper powershell command to use. I know there is a -seedingpostponed and -Truncatelagtime command but I am not clear what they do. The problem as I see it is that it would take a couple of days to get the .mdb file to my disaster recovery site and if we do a backup in between the time I dismount and copy the database to media to transport it to the disaster recovery site, and it actually gets copied to the SCR server, the logs will get flushed and they won't be available to play back into the database. What are you supposed to do? Not do backups? I can't find a good article that explains this clearly.Everything I have read says use the Update-storageGroupCopy command but that will pull the database over which I cannot do over a WAN. There has to be a way to do this.
