Secondary Switch RRS feed

  • Question

  • We had an issue where our primary DPM server failed.  We switched over to the secondary for one of our larger databases where we wish to keep at least 8 backups per day.

    Following resolution of the issue on the primary we then switched back.  Obviously the recovery points that had been taken in the interim are not available on the primary.  Is there a resolution to this?  Can we sync the interim recovery points from secondary to primary to ensure that the primary is the single source of recovery points?

  • Hi,

    this is a "by design" feature.

    The secondary will relay the primary but won't be able to pass the captured data back to the primary afterwards.
