DR Restore of Hyper-V at seconday site if Primary is offline. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our current setup is as follows. 

    We have a Primary DPM server protecting some stand alone Hyper-V hosts.  We also have a secondary DPM server colocated at a datacenter along with standby Hyper-V hosts.  The Seconday server is backing up the Primary's System State, DPM Databases and Hyper-V VM's.

    If the Primary goes offline, will I need anything else (specificaly BMR) off of the Primary DPM server in order perform restores to our standby Hyper-V hosts?

    With Hurricane Isaac having a crosshair on our facility I am a little nervous.

  • Hi,

    to restore to your standby Hyper-V hosts you won't need anything else than the replicas.

    You'll be able to restore your VM as fast as on the primary.

    Just make sure you have a backup of your primary server : Database and if you can BMR. This will be useful to recreate the backup on your primary site in case of disaster (related or not to Isaac).
