I managed two CCM PUB & SUB.

One CCM(PUB) occured to fail booting, CCM(SUB) was ok.

Now CCM(SUB) is working IPT service.

For recover this, I reinstall CCM(PUB).

I Backup CCM database & config with Disaster Recovery System from CCM(SUB).

And I restore DATA to new-installed CCM(PUB).

But restore failed with following log.

You cannot take a Backup from the Subscriber and install it on the Publisher. Backup should always be taken from the Publisher and then restored.

Incase you dont have a valid backup of the Publisher, I dont think you can do a DRS Restore.

Hi Drazik,

I also have the same error. I only turn on the  Publisher, I stop Cisco Database Layer Monitor, but I still get the error.

If you have resolved the error, please help me to fix it.

Thanks you so much,
