Disaster Recovery ZCM 11 Test

Hello,

Over a couple of months we have to do a restore test on another location of all our servers. (do that 1x p/y)

For ZCM: i have
2x Primary ZCM 11.0, SLES 11 SP1. (ESX)
1x External Sybase ZCM 11.0, SLES 11 SP1 (ESX)
1x Satellite, HPdl360 ZCM 11.0, SLES 11 SP1 (PHYSICAL)

Because the severs has a lot of disk space, i was asking myself if it's possible to only restore the first primary server, and the Database server.
Is that working?
I've no closest server rules (at the moment 10.3.0), and the default closest server rule has the 2 primary's in one group.
Satellite is only doing imaging role, so no problem to take that over.
I've test in the past that i can still login with the second primary shutdown.

Hope someone can tell me more.

Sure I don't see why not, just treat it like the other primary has crashed and remove it from the system. If it won't let you remove it using standard methods (zman zenserver-retire or server-delete) you can use the web removal method discussed in the following thread:

The only thing to make sure of is that it is the first server that is the CA and the second server does not have the satellite in its hierarchy

Hope this helps
Cheers

Re: Disaster Recovery ZCM 11 Test

Did the recovery test, and it was succesfully.
Only restored 1 primary server (holding the CA).
Everything worked fine, and i was able to delete the second primary within zcc without any problems.

I like the ZCM disaster recovery method. This is the second time i had success with backup / restore zcm serverconfig/Certificate/Database/Content-Repo.
