| | BES Express and DR in another datacenter
Please Login to Remove!
I have read "BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Microsoft Exchange
Disaster Recovery Guide" and i have some questions.
First, does this guide apply to the Express version of BES also?
Once a disaster event has been declared, my plan is to bring up a copy of the BESX (VMware) VM in the standby datacenter along with a copy of the database. (These copies are kept up to date in the standby datacenter via SAN replication.) Will this work if i take into consideration the steps in the DR guide for attaching the database, stopping/starting services, etc.? And of course I'll have a network change because i am in a different datacenter.
Most of the documentation i read, focuses on a standby BESx server in the same datacenter. Also my situation is a bit different in that the standby BESx VM will not exist until the primary BESx is offline - and this BES VM is an exact copy of the primary BESx (with a network IP change).
Will my plan work? Any pitfalls i should be aware of?
