Testing a DRS restore?

Good Morning NetPros,

Has anyone successfully tested a DRS restore, CUCM version 7.1.3, without affecting production? I would like to be confident that the DRS backups generated are actually going to work if a restore procedure is ever needed. Now that I have had consistent backups for a good amount of time, this is something I'd be curious if anyone has done.

Would I be able to perform a restore on production servers without requiring services to restart? Would it require a restart of the server?

It's probably best to perform this on a test system, however I am not afforded the luxury of that : )

Thanks,

Shane

You cannot do this on a production system without affecting service.

1) It requires a reboot

2) You lose any data from when the backup was performed and then restored

If you do not have a test system, I would recommend getting a fresh backup in the evening then doing an immediate restore and getting everything back up and running.

Yes, you should typically do this on a test system.
