I am setting up a disaster recovery site...
Commserv A with MA A will be running on main site on the same physical computer with a tape library attached.
MA B will be installed on a physical computer with a tape library attached at DR SITE and able to run backups of servers at that site.
I want to install the dr commserv (B) and have the services standing by on that same computer. In due time I will want to start the commserv services on that commserv (B) and apply a DR and have commserv B (assuming role of A) and MA B taking charge of backups and restores.
I have a DR license for my commserv.
A commserv cannot be installed in decoupled mode.
I had succeeded in installing the MA B attached to commserv A and it was working fine.
I then proceeded to install the commserv B (standby commserv)... oups would not install commserv if MA agent already installed...
Thinking "no big deal" I went and UNINSTALLED everything.
Reinstalled the commserv B… and stopped the services.
Went to install Media Agent B which I want to register with commserv A… NO CAN DO…!!!
I've tried a decoupled install. It is supposed to build an .xml file that serves when you want to do the registering… The xml file was not created…
I thought this was pretty straightforward procedure… Turns out it is a bit more complicated than I thought!!!
Can anybody help?
