Need to setup some type of disaster recovery for sccm 2012

I have a single primary sccm 2012 site. Just the one server. At this time it houses it's own SQL DB. This will be eventually moved to a separate SQL cluster.

But I need to come up with a type of disaster recovery. I;ve checked and do not see any type of fail over setup possible for sccm 2012.

Has any one setup or devised a way to have some type of recovery if the their primary server was someone wiped out?

Hi

As far as the Central Administration Site is concerned, you can have the DB on a replicated SQL cluster.

The other roles can all be installed on another server, including management point, etc.

Personally, I have used other means of replication to DR (VMware SRM and EMC RecoverPoint).

This blog post mentions that the recommended option is backup/restore if other means do not fit.

Separate application (SCCM) and the database on different VM's / Servers - on the SQL side use the fail over cluster for the database - the application can always be re-installed.  DB needs to be in HA.
