Is this in addition to your existing Domino backup plan?

As for BES, if you regularly perform backups using the besbackup utility and keep regular copies of the userlist and database files (if you wish), then along with your domino DR plan you should be set.

From experience, as long as you can get your mail system back up, then BES isnt too hard to recover. More so on Exchange, but Domino is quite similar.

If the BES goes down, you'll stop getting/sending emails and any PIM synchronisation. Phone calls and PIN to PIN will still work, as will wap browsing (if its enabled). MDS browsing will of course go down.

so there is nothing really that can be done except for getting the BES back up and running!
