SCR – Backup confusion

We are currently planning the implementation of SCR and I am slightly confused. We have one stand alone Exchange 2007 server with one storage group on it. We are using NT Backup to backup the store to our SAN. Once we setup the SCR server is it really necessary to try to come up with a plan to perform any other backups other than the one we are using ? From what I understand if there are any issues with out original Exchange database we just switch over to the backup copy on the SCR server and rebuild the first one, only then assigning it the role of the SCR. My manager insists we need to formulate a secondary backup plan but from my own point of view between the NT backup of the store and the SCR being done we have redundant backup solutions. Any ideas ?

Well it depends!
Unfortynately most answers on subjects like this start that way. It depends on what your disaster recovery plans are?

It sounds from your description that you have implemented SCR WITHIN your “datacentre”, and if so you need to have a plan about what will happen if you lose either both ends of the SCR or the entire datacentre.

You can use Exchange with CCR and SCR concurrently and replicate to a remote disaster recovery site.
