Hi All,

Im setting up a DR server and need to replicate our SQL Database's from the master DC to the DR DC. I have not installed SQL on the DR server yet, just in case I should be setting up different then a standalone version.

Can anyone assist me?

What do you plan on using to move data from your master to your slave system?

Hi,

To be honest, I was really exspecting you to tell me how to do it. I could use DFS replication or some other form of replication/copy software. But I was kind of exspacting it to be built into SQL some how.

Can I just simply copy the database from one DC to another? I would think it would be harder than that. Microsoft software normally is.

OK, no problem.  

If I were you, I would setup log shipping.  It is a cheap, built in option and you don't have tohave the enterprise version to do it.
