Scripted Authoritative Restore For Replica

Post by adapterer » Mar 14, 2017 8:15 am

Hi,

I'm wondering if anyone has scripted the authoritative restore for a DC in a DR environment? https://www.veeam.com/blog/how-to-recov ... ction.html- Veeam I think you do this for SureBackup/Replica?

Would be great to have this 100% automated rather than requiring manual intervention.

Note I am aware that this will not work for recovery into an environment with other DC's, more for a 'full site failover' scenario. :)

I imagine the script would just need to set two registry keys as a pre-replica script, run the replica job, then revert the keys after replica as a post-replica script.

Correct.

Wouldn't it better to have those scripts as post failover plan actions (set pair of regkeys, restart VM)? The idea here is to avoid setting regkeys on running mission critical VMs.

That sounds like a much better idea! :lol: How would this work for a CC environment though, where presumably myself as a SP does not have a logon to the client's server?

That works even better for cloud scenario, because for cloud failover plans scripts have to be specified on SP's side, not on tenant's one! :)

What about permissions though? Would the client have to hand over some credentials?

Correct, registry modifications would require guest credentials.
