We currently back up the Pub. only , what happens if we need to rebuild
Do we ?
1. Restore the Pub which will be on the latest we are on 6.1.x
2. Re-install the 6.0.x disk on each Sub
3. Upgrade each Sub to the actual release we are on- 6.1.x
4. Carry out a UTILS DBREPLICATION ALL on the Pub- will this be enough to replace the Publisher data to all the Subs
One Sub only - As it as above?
Would it be best for take a back up of each sub once a month or longer so at least we can just do a DRS on the subscriber rather then the full install, upgrade as in steps 2, 3 , if so will the Utils DBREPLICATION <NODENAME> RESET on the Pub force the new data from the Pub to be replicated to the faulty Sub to before
Also what part does the Recovery Disk play?
Any comments, best practice
