    Disaster Recovery

    Hi all,

    We've changed our network (from RM to vanilla - windows 2003/2007). We've/I've not written a disaster recovery process yet, am I right in thinking it should be a detailed document on how to recover if certain servers fail? Or for different scenarios?

    Do you have one if so how detailed is it?

    Thanks

    Your disaster recovery plan should allow a competent person (i.e an IT Professional who isn't necessarily you because you may have died in the fire) to restore your network to a working state.

    Think it should cover anything from a single server or switch failing, right up to a procedure for completely restoring from backup in the event of total destruction of the servers
