Can the CommServe installation created during Testing CommServe Failover Using Disaster Recovery (DR) Backups procedure be maintained after the test? Do I need to turn off the server or to shutdown Commvault Services?

Hi Eduardo,

After you performed all the steps for a test failover using a DR backup as per the link below, you can do whatever you please with the test DR server.  As long as the database was restored in the “Maintenance/Staging” mode and any test failover group you created was reverted, then this server would be “disconnected” from the rest of the environment.

You can certainly keep the services on and use it as a testing server or keep them in a stopped state.  

You can also use this a a cold standby DR server in the event your production server ever failed.


Let us know if you have any follow up questions.
