DP9: Failover to DR site

I have been tasked with designing and performing a DR test.  I have 2 DP CM and 2 StoreOnce 4500s.  I am trying to figure out the best way to have the DR CM take over and keep backups rolling.   I am sure someone has set this up and done.  I am not looking for details (at this point) but maybe a nice step-by-step guide.


  • Hello,

    ideal scenario:

    create a DP-cluster served by your two node

    Let the SO do a catalyst Low Bandwith Replication to each other and spread the backup load on your two appliances.

    Whenever 1 site/CM/SO goes down, the other one has it all to start immediate restore to recover from your crash.

    2nd best:

    a standby CM
