Backup-Restore RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Fellows,

    I know that for primary we can take backup and restore when it fails. But I do not know what do do for SECONDARY SITES FOR SCCM.

  • There is no concept of backing up a Secondary site from within the SCCM or daily/weekly file backup. In SCCM 2012 you can restore/regenerate the Secondary site from its Parent Primary.

    Following points must be remembered:

    1.The Restore option does not Install SQL Express by default . If you do not have it installed then install it as SQL Express Installation is not a part of Secondary Site Restore .

    2.  As is obvious , the DB Name and other things should remain the same .

    3.  You must use a computer with the same configuration as the failed computer, such as its FQDN, to successfully recover the secondary site. The computer must also meet all secondary site prerequisites and have appropriate security rights configured. Also, use the same installation path that was used for the failed site.
