Migrate mailboxes from a dead Exchange Server in a Diaster Recovery environment

We have two exchange servers, one at Head Office (HO) and one at our Disaster Recovery (DR) site. Currently all our mailboxes are on the HO server and there are only a few test accounts on the DR server.

Assuming worse case and that our main site is knocked out, how would I migrate mailboxes between the two?

Is there a better system than the one I am proposing? Can I have dormant mailboxes on the DR server ready to take over?
