Check That FMS Remote [Offsite] Backup Is Viable
Our LEA is backing up our FMS data remotely. I have been asked to check that the data that is backed up can be restored and accessed in the event of a disaster. I have restored the data to an alternate location and shown that all of the files are present. However I have been told that this is not good enough and I should show that a fully working FMS instance can be logged on and the backed up data accessed.
Our LEA has helped us as much as they can [we do not have a suitable support plan for them to help us further] What I am looking for is instructions for setting up FMS on a laptop and making it available for use. I have tried this a couple of times now and I seem to be missing something. Does anyone have some step-by-step instructions I could follow [this is starting to wear me down]
Thanks in advance.
Edit: Our FMS SIMS uses SQL 2008.
