Hi Nagarajan,

To my knowledge there is no official disaster recovery checklist and plan for SAP B1. This is probably because such a plan depends on the risk analysis for a company, which of course will be different for each company. Also a lot depends on the B1 version, and corresponding database, server tools, and license server. Assuming that B1 database backups are taken care of, recovery is really pretty much the same as a new installation. So if that is your question, you can simply take a look at the installation guide.

One of the companies' I worked for product/service portfolio, actually included risk analysis and disaster recovery checklists and plans. Exactly because the risk situation, and the available resources for backup and recovery, are different each time.

The main question is what a company considers to be a disaster. Is a power outage of an hour already a disaster, or is the company building burning to the ground a disaster? How about theft of business data, is that a disaster?

The second question is, what resources for protection against, and recovery from a disaster, can a company bring to bear. Do they have the hardware to create enough backups? Do they have an internet connection that allows for the transfer of large backup files to cloud storage? If the building burns down, how fast can they get new hardware?

And the final question is, where lies the balance between safety and cost?

In conclusion, it is actually a rather complicated subject matter, that requires more consideration than most customers realize.

Johan

Hi Johan,

Thank you for detailed explanation.

You are aware that, recent malware and virus attacks affects customer database and recovery of database also not possible.

As per this situation, could you recommend any plan/activity to recover customer database with minimum time?

Once again thank you for your time and reply.

Regards,

Nagarajan
