MDS Backup / Restore / Failover RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi all,

    is there a strategy in order to do backup, restore of mds in case of failure ?

    Not just on SQL Database level, but more specifically on MDS level.

    Saving a package is a good stuff, but what about user rights, notification email configuration, and more generally, global mds configuration (system settings, Sharepoint/Custom workflow settings) ?

    At SQL level, I could use Database snapshots for data-tier, and also rebuild sql database quickly  (in less than 5 minutes ,if I trust this article)

    but on Data-Tier and also on App tier : what are the best practises ?

    backup/restore IIS configuration and/or use "repair" option from MDS Setup package ?

    I found nearly no MDS specific backup/restore plans on internet.

    Thank you,
