Impact of no Master
We are moving data centers and it looks like our only Master server is going to be down for 24-48 hours. This master server is now at site A and also acts as a media server for this site. We are moving all the systems in site A to site C. We have a second site, B that has a media server and backs up everything at site B. I want to make sure I understand all of the impacts of not having a master available. Can someone validate if I have this right?
1. I won't be able to backup at either site while the master is down.
2. I will be able to perform restores at site B while the master is down. Since I have a copy of the catalog backed up to disk at site B and also can read the catalog from a tape should I need a restore.
3. If I need to restore data from site A while the master is down, I can send the tapes to site B and recover suing the catalog information on the tape.
