SharePoint Disaster Recovery Advisor
Disaster Recovery Advisor is a companion tool for Quest Recovery Manager for SharePoint. It guides the you through the process of WSS v3 or MOSS 2007 farm restoration during disaster recovery. DR Advisor analyzes the live SharePoint configuration database, or the configuration database backup. It then creates a detailed checklist of actions required to return the SharePoint farm back to operational state and verifies each components' availability in real time. This allows you to quickly assess where you are in the SharePoint farm disaster recovery process and what servers, databases, or services have yet to be restored. DR Advisor also suggests appropriate psconfig.exe commands to properly re-provision SharePoint to the front-ends as you bring them back, and allows to re-create required SQL logins for SharePoint to work.
Questions and feedback are welcome in the Recovery Manager forum!
