We had a problem with our SAN that required that the Blackberry server be recovered from backups and have since found that the SQL db's were not being backed up. The Domino instance recovered fine, however we are now missing all of the SQL db's therefore preventing BES starting.
Any ideas on the best way to recover these db's?
Thanks for the reply.
I thought that was going to be the case, just hoping there was a trick to rebuild from the domino db's.
Reinstalled software, recreated user accts and used OTA EA to bring the punters back online.

Actually if you have an almost complete BES folder, then after recreating the BESMgmt db, you can run the nbesmigration.exe to populate the records back. Should not need to re-EA I think. Just an untested idea.

Once your BES is up and running I would backup the DB and move it somehwere safe. Then, whenever you make any significant changes: new user/remove user/new hh for user, I would back it up again. That way if you have another crash like that you can recover a little easier.
