Re: IBM / Brocade network advisor High Availbility

Greetings gowhar.  What I'm trying to understand from your inquiries, 'why' the need to failover to a new DR.  The reason I'm asking is, lets say you experience a fabric outage (ie natural disaster occurs, power outage and generator failure), in this scenario, you would need a complete redundant fabric at your DR site for this scenario to be applicable.  If we are talking just a down server, in that scenario, either suggestion/recommendation of:

  1. restoring a backup of the BNA database to a new install of BNA from the one that went down.
  2. Following the MS-Cluster option

So my personal recommendation would be option #1.  My reasoning, option #2, the failover can take just as long as doing option #1.  The only downside to #1 is you have to have a new server ready to go.

So again, if you could add just a bit more information that would be helpful to give you a 'brocade perspective' answer.
