General SharePoint Considerations in Disaster Recovery solutions

These are important points to consider with remote SharePoint disaster recovery solutions:

  • When adding new Site Collection in a database that is replicated to the Disaster Recovery farm, make sure to update the configuration database in Disaster recovery farm to register the new created site collection because it will not automatically be updated, you can updated using the following PowerShell:
    $db = Get-SPDatabase | where {$_.Name -eq “DatabaseName”}
    $db.RefreshSitesInConfigurationDatabase()
  • In case of multi subnet failover cluster, consider to use MultiSubnetFailover property for all SharePoint databases to make the connection to different subnet more stable and to avoid connection timeouts issue.
