We are planning to perform a test DR of our infrastructure and IFS system as this is a requirement for SOX/Audit to evidence we have performed this task.
We have Oracle database on a Linux server, whereas IFS environments are on Windows servers. We have Mobile and 360 in addition to the Middle Ware (MW) server. We are using IFS Apps 8.
Our Windows servers are mirrored using a 3rd party product, and i believe the plan is to fail over to a mirrored equivalent during the test.
We copy the Live Oracle files to our TEST Oracle server hourly. The plan is to create the Live database on the test server using the backed up files transferred from Live server.
Once the database is up, i understand i need to perform a re-config on the MW server to point to this database on the test server instead of the Live server for the purpose of DR test.
Are there any other steps I need to perform to allow IFS to work in this DR scenario?
I am looking for guidance or advise on experiences of performing a DR test of IFS environments and what areas we need to consider.
Thank you in advance
