Post subject: IMA/SQL Fail Over
Archived from groups: alt>os>citrix (more info?)

I have just started looking after a clients Citrix XP infrastructure
and wanted peoples opinion on this

1 IMA - currently the IMA runs on a SQL size. I want to look into
redundancy -0 have another SQL server running IMA - probably doing SQL
replication - so if the primary goes down the secondary one can come
into play - anyone does such a implementation (to be honest I am no
SQL guru) - any ideas on this, pros and cons

2 Zone Data Collector - currently one Zone data collector is set up -
I want to assign other servers as secondary ones - so in the event of
the Zone data collector going down, the secondary one can come into
effect. Anyone implemented such a set-up - how do I go about doing an
election to promote Zone Data Collectors

feedback from people who have done such a redundancy on a Citrix
Infrastructure.

Thanks in advance to anyone who replies.

if you properly back up your datastore a good maintenance plan there is no
need to have a live clone of the datastore.....

the SQL is backed up every night however I like to look at disaster
recovery from all angles and try to make a recovery as smooth and
quick as possible.
as I say an extra recovery method is ideal if one recovery method
fails...

if your primary backup is offsite and with something as simple as DLT tape
you sql datastore is damn near triple fault tolerant already with a simple
plan

not only do a tape back up but also do a live disk copy to another member
server, heck I set mine up to copy to a couple of PCs offsite every other
night on top of a server....raid drives on the server of course, tape
offsite....point being unless you add apps and servers daily the datastore
is almost static

invest your time and $ elsewhere, a sql datastore is magnificent with simple
back up methodologies
