Exchange 2003 DR

In another DR situation coming up shortly, we are going to restore a w2k3 server with exchange2k3 on it. I’ve done it (for real) on exchange2000 and it wasn’t a pleasant experience but hopefully e2k3 has improved the methods used to do a recovery. Checking in technet I found a good page which has multimedia presentations on how to do various exchange2003 recovery procedures. Hopefully I can find this content on my technet cd’s so I don’t have to download it off the internet but again, useful training to do before the event.

Transport Direct

The government have launched Transport Direct which gives you maps, door to door planning, travel news on a website. Worth a bookmark and lets hope they keep developing it and making it better.
Update I am impressed that my destination can be as accurate as the company name that I work for – most of the time sites like this choke on the postcode as it is often not recognised. The only journey it recommends is by car and it reckons it will take 23 minutes – more likely 45 – the designers obviously not driven to Crewe at 9am in the morning. It would also be nice to get a routemap of the journey – something I’ve given them in the feedback so will be interesting to see what feedback I get.
