For what it's worth, Mainline just got fired by one of my clients. It was
discovered that the youngster who was being paid to monitor Mimix every week
hadn't noticed a year's worth of synchronization errors under the covers.
The machine is part of an acquisition, and was not under control of my
client's staff until a couple of weeks ago.

The Vision Solutions employee we brought in to look at the setup stated that
one, there was no way he would attempt to do a role swap to the DR machine,
and two, he recommended that the client reconfigure the entire configuration
and start over.

I recall asking here about Mainline, and got an answer that they seem to do
a good job, but are rather light on talent trained on the Rochester
platform.

A word to the wise........

Mainline Disaster Recovery may be worth looking into. Low-cost insurance
policy-type option.

Really looking at a major disaster where the system is destroyed. Backups
are done on a timely basis and stored off site. I will look at the link
that you sent and reply to that at a later date.

FWIW - the client really doesn't want to spend a ton of money on DR (who
does?) and my hounding the importance of it seems to be falling on deaf
ears, but I'm continuing to push it regardless.

Thanks for taking the time to replay.

What kind of disaster? System outage, or Hurricane wiping out the
building containing the system?

How far apart are the plants?

What kind of Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point
Objective
(RPO) are you looking for?

Honestly, a DR solution is just one small step in Business Continuity
Planning (BCP)

All,

One of my clients is looking for a disaster recovery solution.
They are privately held. The system is a model E4A with processor code
5634.
The system has 3 LPARS. Production (2109 G of Disk), Test (372.8 G
of
Disk) and a development environment that has yet to be set up. They
are
on
7.1 and run PRMS and some custom code. There are 4 plants and about
150 users.

We are looking for a cost effective solution that can be
implemented in a day or 2.

Any thoughts/advise are welcome.

Thanks much.

Rich
