Disaster Recovery options for Data Protector 6.2

I now have a DP Cell 6.2 running on Windows 2008 R2 with a Tape Library attached.  We are in the process of setting up a Disaster Recovery location at a remote site.  I plan to stage a DP server with tape library attached at that DR location.


What are my options with DP to be able to restore tape backups at the DR site in case the Main site (including my Cell server) are destroyed?


Can I replicate the DP Cell at DR?


How does licensing work?

Hi Paule,


you might have a look at my site: http://www.data-protector.org/wordpress/2011/03/recover-cell-server-with-enhanced-automated-disaster-recovery/

Her you can find some hints and a script to make DR for the cell server available.


Best regards
