Contributors netapp-nsriram netapp-soumikd

When the SnapCenter Plug-in for SQL Server is down, switch to a different SQL host and recover the data by performing few steps.

What you will need

  • The secondary host should have the same operating system, application, and host name as the primary host.

  • Push the SnapCenter Plug-in for SQL Server to an alternative host using Add host or Modify host page.

Steps

  1. Select the host from the Hosts page to modify and install the SnapCenter Plug-in for SQL Server.

  2. (Optional) Replace the SnapCenter Plug-in for SQL Server configuration files from disaster recovery (DR) backup to the new machine.

  3. Import Windows and SQL schedules from the SnapCenter Plug-in for SQL Server folder from the DR backup.
