My boss mentioned to me that he wants to start making backup's of our cisco voice enviornment. Currently we have 4 servers.
All of these servers are build with a RAID 1 mirror. He mentioned that typically people will pull one hard drive to keep as a backup, and then rebuild the mirror with a new blank hard drive.
Is this something anyone can speak to? It sounds pretty straightforward, but I want to find out if there is a typical procedure you would follow for this. I've done similar things with Windows servers, but never in a cisco enviornment.
I'll just add a reference to the great tips from my friend Java (+5 "J") Bosses always
want to see these things in writing
