If your primary system is down you can activate your DR system. You must only access your DR site when your primary site is down. Alternatively, you can validate your DR for a limited time without affecting your primary site. This is a temporary DR test state so that you can confirm that DR is valid. At the end of a set period, the DR site returns to it’s primary role and any test data is removed.
Note: Before attempting the following steps, contact NAVBLUE Support so that they are aware of your activities and can assist if necessary.
