In this demo-driven session we look at how to recover from various Failover Cluster disaster scenarios such as an accidental deletion of the Cluster Name Object, the loss of a shared cluster disk or loss of the quorum resource. We recover an entire Windows Server 2012 Failover Cluster including all of its resources using the Bare Metal Recovery feature of Windows Backup and have a look at how Microsoft System Center 2012 - Data Protection Manager can help with a successful recovery. We also look at how to perform an authoritative restore of the cluster database and recover all cluster resources in case of an accidental deletion. Learn everything you need to prepare for a successful recovery, what lessons we learned after working with many customers on their Windows Server Failover Cluster disaster recovery plans, and how issues were resolved.
