I created a replication set a few weeks back, ran the baseline and the live data is being sent without any problems. However, I haven't configured the recovery points yet. Actually, I've been reading the documentation and I am a little confused on what I need to do.
The source server has SQL on it and the pair was configured with Add App. The destination is just a holding location. I have a 3rd server where the actual files would be restored to if needed in a DR situation (its in a DMZ so we aren't going to automount the recovery points).
From the documentation I read, since this is SQL the restore would need to come from a consistent recovery point or back up of one.
What I need to know is where the Recovery Points are stored, is the source or destination or both?
Initially, I thought it was the log files I had to be concerned about disk space, so I had those setup on different volumes. If the recovery points are only saved on the destination server, then I'm good to go, if they are also saved on the source, then we will have other issues. Right now, I planned on only keeping 2 recovery points since this was for DR purposes.
