Moving CA & DA to diffrent server.
We are planning to perform a Business continuity Plan testing in few months and i have been assigned a task to perform a full failover of my Prod enviroment to my Disaster recovery enviroment. My prod enviroment is as mentioned below.
Prod Enviroment (NYC Datacenter)
1 Journaling Server EV 9.0.2 windows 2003 Std edition
1 SQL server 2005 on windows 2003 std edition
1 Compliance Acclerator on windows 2003 Std edition
1 Discovery Acclerator on windows 2003 std edition
Journal Index is been writtern on local drive in prod (Will get the index data on DR server by robocopy)
Journal Data is been writtern on EMC Centera Storage and have replication set on it so all journal data is already present on DR centera Box.
DR enviroment (Tacoma Datacenter)
1 Windows 2003 server for Journal server
1 SQL server 2005 with Prod DB replicated to DR SQL server
1 windows 2003 for CA use
1 Windows 2003 for DA use
So here is what its going to happen when actual BCP /DR test going to happen, no Compliance users would be able to access Prod server using application CA/DA from their machine and they would require to connect to DR site server to access their application.
So i need to be in a postion to make this application work, hence would like to have your expert advice on how would i be able to perfrom the failover with my existing infra in place.
I have done some research and came across below technote.
