Restoring MOM Data

Depending on the failure scenario, in order to restore MOM functionality, you might first need to repair or reinstall a failing server, reinstall SQL Server, or both. Whenever you are planning to restore MOM data, you must reinstall software using the original settings, such as computer names, installation paths, management group names, and the DAS account.


When you are restoring a MOM server, Management Group names are case-sensitive. Enter the name exactly as the original, with the same uppercase and lowercase spelling.

After recovering any failing MOM servers, and reinstalling components, as needed, you can restore the MOM data that was lost.

See Table 5.1 for the high level restoration procedure, based on the failure scenario. Refer to the specific restoration procedures in this section, as needed.
