I am new to disaster recovery (DR) and IT management. I have a production site with Cisco switches, and I'm backing up data to a storage area network (SAN). I have a GB link to a remote office and would like to replicate data to another SAN at the remote location. How do I set up a DR virtual LAN (VLAN) at the production site to replicate and switch over users in the event of a disaster?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can set up an explicit route, but the best way to do this will depend on the software set that you have on your routers. I would suggest reaching out to your Cisco representative to see what the best way is to do this. You may need to add some software functions to do this.
