Protect an SCR server post-activation

Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Data Protection Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Data Protection Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Data Protection Manager

Activation of an SCR target is done in case of a major disaster that results in no easier options to recover the Exchange server. When such a disaster happens, you have to remove protection for the SCR server to allow DPM to protect it as the primary Exchange server.
Use Remove-SCRSG.ps1 on the SCR server to remove it from the protection group.

After you activate the SCR server as the primary Exchange server, a new SCR server has to be put in place to continue SCR protection. You must specifically enable protection for the new SCR target.
