We have Server 2003 Standard and it is running as the domain controller/Active Directory, DNS, DHCP and file server. I need to put together a diaster recovery plan and test how easy it would be to recover the server on different hardware at a differant location in the event that we lose our live server.
Assuming that in the event of a disaster, that the only media we will have are the installation disks for Server 2003 and the last full backup tape with differential tape. What do I need on the second server to be up in the event of a disaster?
I am using Symantec 12.5 for my backup to tape jobs, again I run differential backups with full backups of my data, system state, Exchange and active directory.
I also have an Exchange Server 2007 and currently backing up to tape, I would have to get email back up and not sure if it would be possible to recover on the same server?
I would like to understand the steps involved.
