Preparing for disaster recovery on a Lotus
A Disaster Preparation
Plan is necessary for restoring Lotus Domino databases efficiently
and effectively in the event of a catastrophic failure. The goal is
to minimize the time to recover. Developing a backup strategy for
your Windows computers and Lotus Domino databases is the critical
part of this plan.
When developing a strategy for backing up your
Lotus Domino databases, consider the following recommendations:
If you have linked databases, it is best to keep
them on one volume. This allows Backup Exec to synchronize the
databases before they are backed up.
Back up active databases often. This reduces the
amount of effort required to update the databases to the point
following the most recent backup.
Ensure that the notes.ini, cert.id, and server.id
files are protected and available if a disaster occurs.
