Sharepoint full farm recovery to DR location RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are backing up our Sharepoint 2010 farm via DPM 2010 but not our Front Ends or Application servers. All of these are virtualized so I am wondering if just backing up the Virtual Machines for 1 front end and 1 application server (handles incoming email, search, etc..) would be a good idea for recovery. My thought is in DR, bring up the FE & APP server, then recover the farm. In this scenario perhaps both APP servers should be backed up? The 2 FE's are loadbalanced using a hardware load balancer so it should work fine with the one.

  • Yes, the DR strategy you mention should work fine.
