Impacts on the DPs when deleting a secondary site RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI,

    I am having problems with a secondary site and the recovery with CU2 is not working for me. I am at the point of deleting the site, rebuild the server and reinstall the Secondary Site.

    My question is, What will happen to all my DPs which are assigned to the SS site code I am about to blow away? Will I need to rebuild the DPs or will they find the site if I use the same site code.

    Thx Rob

  • Why delete the site?

    I would go for the following procedure:
    - Backup content library
    - Rebuild the server (same name)
    - Restore content library
    - Install SQL (same version/instance)
    - Site Administration > Recover Secondary Site

    Once the site has been recovered it should sync with the remote DP's again as before.

  • Thx for the quick response. I attempted to recover the site but it fails. It downloads all files and creates the DB but stops there. Nothing in the logs is showing that something is in progress... it just stops. 

    I will rebuild the server as suggested and try the recovery again on a clean build.
