From a network administrator's perspective, what steps should be taken to either test a failover or go through one actually?
For the sake of simplicity, we'll consider an HO and a DR location equipped with the same equipment. The DR is hot with data being replicated. I've attached an ascii representation of the network.
What step by step procedures must be in place to expedite a smooth failover?
You don't have to write it up yourselves, just point me to the links or documents that'll help me get the answers.
Thanks for looking.
