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".
