Restoring Unity - Disaster Recovery Scenario

Unanswered Question
Nov 5th, 2007

Hi all,

I've been thinking about how to recover a unity server in a disaster recovery scenario...

At a high level I would:

- Rebuild the server via the normal installation process

- Restore from tape the Exchange Message store

- Restore from tape backup the SQL Data Store

I'm thinking I might also have to restore the system state as well but I'm not certain on that one.

Can anyone advise on the appropriate steps?


I have this problem too.

The supported method is covered in the Reconfiguration and Upgrade Guide:

DiRT should be included in the Cisco Unity Tools Depot under Administrative Tools, but can also be downloaded from here:

These instructions should get you where you need to go.

I hope this helps.
