I (we) don't have 2 machines.

Jeff,

That isn't testing, that is suicide. Never restore onto the live
machine, never, ever, ever. I don't care if you are one guy, or 400
men/women. Never.

Testing is where you go to another machine and restore leaving the
original machine UNTOCUHED.

Not to sound 'flippant' in another way, but . . .

I'm a 1-person IT shop with a non LPARed 520. There is no way on God's
green earth that I would try a complete reinstall from scratch over a
weekend just to see if it works.

And yes, I know that means it's untested.

to discover if everything will work.

However, a full save followed by a full restore, will put everything
back the way it should be and you can expect your Web Applications to
run just fine. The DR Test will prove that you are saving everything and
that everything is restoring correctly.

Subject: Websphere Disaster Recovery

Up until now, our DR process has been simple - restore from our Save 21
tape according to the Backup and Recovery Guide. Now, we've started
running some apps that use Websphere. Does that complicate our DR
process? It appears that all of the Websphere pieces live in the IFS.
Will there be tweaks to Websphere after we restore the IFS to the DR box
or will it 'just run'?

Thanks,

Steve
