DR is fun ......as long as you don't have to go to Dayton to do it. We go to Rancho B. We contracted with NCR for our DR. We create a
duplicate backup tape after backups have run using iebgener. These tapes are shipped offsite along with the printout from arcmain. We also
backup arcmain output onto tape, we put a listcat on tape of all gdg's created in backup cycles so that we can tell what tape came from what
job, the arcmain parms, space report all on same tape and a tree diagram of the heirarchy. All this stuff goes into offsite Teradata Tub.
We send the tub to Rancho when get ready to do DR. We have contracted for a smaller box then our Production box here so we are doing a
negative space restore. When you restore the Dictionary DBC comes up negative. You then have to drop/delete what you don't need (we have
three app's on box) only one is DR. So we trash the other two app's from the catalog. This makes DBC positive space. Then we restore our
data tapes. We restore about 600 gb's in about 30 hours with two tape drives.
