All organisations should consider producing a network disaster recovery document as part of their overall site disaster recovery plans.

Points to consider include:

  • identify staff responsible for each action required by the Recovery Plan
  • keep machine rooms tidy to minimise fire risk
  • maintain offsite secondary servers
  • agree to exchange systems with other sites
  • keep offsite copies of:
    • backups
    • the router configuration
    • critical mailing lists
    • configuration tables for vital services.
