Evaluation Process for Validating Backups
Has anyone developed a standard evaluation process or a list/document that will help to insure we have valid backup data (tape or replicated) - for a specific system.
What is the criteria(s) for what qualifies as a successful test? Currently a way I validate a backup is to perform a restore of a previously selected date, what else should/could I be doing? And how? Any information or guidence is greatly appreciated. Any industry standards out here I could look up on this one?
