We are planning to implement a production with a DR system. The DR system located at remote site will be a standby machine for the production system on MSSQL 2005 win 2008. Both of these severs able to ping each other via WAN and having the same specs.
Both the Production and DR system is NW 7.0 with ABAP + JAVA (XI & EP) and we are planning to install with same SID.
The DR system will be install using system copy. On the regular update from Production to DR, we are planning to use MSSQL Log Shipping method.
1) Log shipping has taken care the MSSQL 2005 part. However, we are not sure on the Java part transfer from the production to the DR? How is normally done.
2) The production server has a local hard disk and external storage(san). The db files will be installed on external storage and Windows on local hd. Where is SAP applications normally installed, local hard disk or external storage (san). What is the advantage and disadvantage for installing in local and external?
Appreaciate any help on this and if you could guide me to some documents specifically related to the above.
Any precaution when do the installation to take note.
Thanks in advance.
