This excerpt from "System Center Operations Manager 2007 Unleashed" helps prepare you for the possibility of a catastrophic failure, and guides you through the process of recovering from a total loss or a downed RMS. Although we hope you never need to restore Operations Manager from a catastrophic failure, you must be prepared for the possibility that this could happen.
Your plan should assume the worst but be able to concisely and efficiently restore Operations Manager at a minimum to the last backup of your databases. There are at two potential scenarios for disaster recovery, discussed in the next sections. Although this is a very simple implementation of Operations Manager, it is intended to show you the steps necessary to recover OpsMgr from a complete hardware failure of the management server.
Install Operations Manager 2007 from the installation media—selecting the option for a typical installation and using the same management group name as the original install.
After Operations Manager is installed, immediately stop the SDK service to prevent the RMS from sending data to the Operational database. Import any additional management packs that were loaded to your old management server or changed and backed up after your last Operational database backup. In addition to deploying log shipping, you will need the RMS and SRS encryption keys for a successful recovery.
Part of any successful disaster recovery plan includes understanding your current configuration.

In most organizations, Disaster Recovery Planning is the quintessential complex, unfamiliar task. All Business Continuity Disaster Recovery Planning efforts need to encompass how employees will communicate, where they will go and how they will keep doing their jobs. But the critical point is that neither element can be ignored, and physical, IT and human resources plans cannot be developed in isolation from each other. The Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) is that tool which can be used as a Disaster Planning Template for any size of enterprise. The Disaster Planning Template and supporting material have been updated to be Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA compliant. Preparation for Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity in light of SOX has two primary parts. Disaster Recovery Business Continuity Template (WORD) - comes with the latest electronic forms and is fully compliant with all mandated US, EU, and ISO requirements. Included with the template are Electronic Forms which have been designed to lower the cost of maintenance of the plan. Work Plan to modify and implement the template. Included is a list of deliverables for each task. Click on the link below to get the Disaster Planning and Business Continuity Planning Template full table of contents and selected sample pages now and make it part of your Disaster Recovery Planning toolkit. Testimonial -  Kelly Keeler - Martin's Point Health Care -I have received and I began using the template immediately. You should have a well-documented recovery plan that would work for every conceivable type of disaster that could occur, from hardware failures to a total datacenter loss.
You need to not only develop a detailed plan for the various contingencies, but should also practice the various scenarios in a development environment until you (and others on your staff for when you are not available) are comfortable with the process. We will assume that our server team has already built a new server using the same NetBIOS name in the same domain, installed SQL Server 2005, and enabled IIS because we will use the OpsMgr 2007 Web console.


This prevents OpsMgr from writing data to this database, which you will be overlaying as part of your recovery process.
Your actual plan should contain greater detail, including specific hard drive configurations, the exact installation options, the SQL steps necessary to delete and restore the databases, and so forth. As we discuss in Chapter 10, log shipping automates the process of backing up database transaction logs and storing them on a standby server.
The first is putting systems in place to completely protect all financial and other data required to meet the reporting regulations and to archive the data to meet future requests for clarification of those reports. The appropriate level of service packs and security patches are applied—be sure to be at the same level of software maintenance that you had with your original system. Specify the same accounts (SDK and Config service, Management Server Action account) as used by your original installation. What's more, the myriad interconnected data, application and other resources that must be recovered after a disaster make recovery an exceptionally difficult and error-prone effort. For some businesses, issues such as supply chain logistics are most crucial and are the focus on the plan. The second is to clearly and expressly document all these procedures so that in the event of a SOX audit, the auditors clearly see that the Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plan exists and appropriately protects the data and assets of the enterprise.. Figure 12.23 illustrates a sample disaster recovery solution that includes log shipping for the Operational and Data Warehouse databases. If your RMS is down and you will not be available to meet your SLAs, you will want to promote an existing management server to become the RMS, as depicted in Figure 12.24. Even if you have never built a Disaster Recovery plan before, you can achieve great results. For others, information technology may play a more pivotal role, and the Business Continuity Disaster Recovery Plan may have more of a focus on systems recovery. If you need to recover your systems, you would restore database backups, promote the management server to become the RMS, and connect the systems. Just follow the DR Template that Janco has created and you will have a functioning plan before you know it. Another approach to use virtualization to provide an off-site disaster recovery solution would be through sending regularly scheduled backups of the virtual hard drives to the disaster recovery location. In the event of a disaster, the backup copies of the virtual hard drives are activated and IP address changes made to reflect their new physical location. This solution builds on some key enhancements in Windows Server 2012 R2 HVR around variable replication frequency, support for near-sync, and extended replication. From a management standpoint, we provide a DR solution via Windows Azure Hyper-V Recovery Manager (HRM), that is integrated with System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM). HRM builds on the world-class assets of Windows Server, System Center, and Windows Azure and it is delivered via the Windows Azure Management Portal. With these facts in mind, the control plane of our solution (HRM) is delivered as a cloud service we call DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service). Since the metadata required for orchestration resides in the cloud, you are insured against losing the critical DR orchestration instructions even if your primary site is impacted, thereby addressing the common mistake wherein the monitoring system monitors itself. HRM manages multiple sites, as well as complex inter-site relationships, thereby enabling a customer to create a comprehensive DR plan. On the deployment side, HRM requires only one provider to be installed per VMM server (a single VMM server can manage 1,000 virtual hosts), thereby addressing the ever-present issue of complexity (the single most important blocker of DR deployments today).
The service itself is in Windows Azure and the provider installed on the VMM servers sends the metadata of the private clouds to the service, which then uses it to orchestrate the protection and recovery of the assets in the private cloud.


For some customers, regulatory compliance requires that application data reside within the confines of their datacenters and, to accommodate these situations, the DR solution is designed such that application data does not goes to Windows Azure. Only metadata (like names of logical clouds, virtual machines, networks etc.) which is needed for orchestration is sent to Azure. The VMM Server can be behind a proxy for higher security and HRM will continue to work seamlessly once you choose the right option in your registration. In the early configure phase, you should map the resources of your primary and secondary sites such that during failover the secondary site provides the resources needed for business continuity. After that, you should protect  Virtual Machines and then create orchestration units for failover. For example, to protect the Gold cloud in VMM-NewYork by the Gold-Recovery of VMM-Chicago, you choose values for simple configurations like replication frequency. It configures all the hosts in both the Gold and Gold-Recovery clouds with the required certificates and firewall rules - and it configures the Hyper-V Replica settings for both clusters and stand-alone hosts. For example, when a replica virtual machine is created on the secondary site, it is placed on a host that has the necessary access to all the required networks.
It even works for heterogeneous deployments, wherein the networks on primary and recovery sites are of different types. For example, the replica virtual machine of Marketing is attached to Network Marketing Recovery since (a) the primary virtual machine is connected to Network Marketing and (b) Network Marketing in turn is mapped to Network Marketing Recovery. These documents are cumbersome to maintain and even if someone made the effort to keep these documents up-to-date, they were prone to the risk of human errors by the staff hired to execute these plans.
For example, in a quick glance customers can identify the last test failover of a plan or how long ago they did a planned failover of a recovery plan. Based on the Virtual Machines participating, the HRM service figures out the VM Networks needed, creates them, and attaches the Virtual Machines to the right VM Networks. In the case of Windows Network Virtualization, the network settings will be carried forward from the replica network to the test network.
Some compliance requirements for organizations mandate the failover of workloads twice-a-year to the recovery site and then running it there for a week. As part of PFO, the Virtual Machines are shut-down, the last changes sent over to ensure zero data loss, and then virtual machines are brought up in order on the recovery site.
But, in eventualities such as natural disasters, this ensures that designated applications can continue to function. In the event of unplanned failovers, HRM attempts to shut down the primary machines in case some of the virtual machines are still running when the disaster strikes. Examples of this include an active-active wherein the NewYork site provides protection for Chicago and vice-versa, many sites being protected by one, complex relationships, or multiple branch offices going to a single head office. For example, when a user takes an action on the HRM portal to setup infrastructure, HRM recognizes that he would be monitoring the portal to ensure the action succeeded. HRM works seamlessly in this case: You can failover the VMM service from one VMM server to another and the management and orchestration will fail over seamlessly. HRM supports a single VMM scenario and enables pairing of clouds administered by the same VMM Server.
Delivered as a service in Azure, HRM is designed to enable protection for many workloads that are currently lacking protection, thereby improving business continuity for organizations.
