CCM 4.1 restore from subscriber?

Does anyone know of a way to restore a publisher from a subsriber? We have had a severe hardware failure and have no way to recover the publisher.

I can't believe there isn't a way to restore the database from the subscriber. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated!


Re: CCM 4.1 restore from subscriber?

It is not possible because the Databases are not exactly the same. If you try to restore a publisher from a subscriber it will not know that is a publisher hence it will not work.

Sorry for the inconvinience.

He is absolutely correct about this. The best thing you can do is copy everything down and reenter it. Aside from this, you should be taking backups of your publisher to prevent this type of problem.

Did they have BARS installed but backing it up to the LOCAL hard drive? If so, BARS gives a big warning if you configure it that way. Maybe they have a BARS backup offbox someplace. When they rebuild install BARS and set the storage location to another server that gets backed up. Might want to keep a copy for yourself somewhere also just in case.
