We do our anual DR tests, and now we are looking to step them up a bit.  Might be nice to see what others do or dont do in this arena. 

We have a DR box that is on a seperate network.  We can take that box build it as a master server and import our catalog from NBU 6.5.3.  We can then patch that into our library via fiber single path slowness, combined with the old leftover of a DR box we should have our critical restore done within 24 hours.  

In a true DR scenario where our primary DC was gone.  I would probably more than likely promote our media server to a master server then do the catalog import piece.  I have not done this since the new and improved 6.5 way of doing things with that small catalog file that i get emailed daily to my inbox.  Have others ?  Does it take long?  Realizing we all have different size catalogs, but in general have you had sucess.  Please add any thoughts or suggestions on how to "do it right".

You will have to use the Same name an the present Master server. If you cahnge then you will have to import all the tapes one by one.. ( Not recommended)
