Disaster recovery NEED HELP....
Posted on 2012-03-17
Have a 2003 SBS server that 2 drives in Raid 5 failed...
Have restored server with Acronis image. But that image is 45 days old do to an full USB drive...
Have a fresh Backup Exec (9.1) backup to tape.
Server is up and running "45-days" old. Have cataloged the tape and see Data drive backup, Excahange and SQL bakup ok from yesterday.
What do I do?
If I just restore Exchange, SQL and Data Drive and rest of server is 45-days old. Will that work?
Do I need to do a Disaster recovery?
Have looked around abit on Disaster recovery by backup exec.
Trying to make a Bootable CD, it gives an error when copying from Win sbs 2003 install cd (to long directory name)
Made an Disaster recovery from an another SBS 2003 server - ok. But it has difrent partitions sizes etc. Can I use that? Also diffrent Bacup Exec (10.1)
Understood that the servername.DR file holds info on drive partitioning and controller driver etc. But that DR file that supposed to update itself with every backup is several years old (from before I changed to larger drives.
If I don't recover AD (just Exc, SQL and Data) I can change passwords - no problem (10 users only)
Or is there some thing else that will force a disater recovery?
Thank you for all inputs!
