Well in a moment of testing need I decided to determine if the backups where working. So I took a backup of the database and restored it to an entirely different database service. I altered the database handler to point at the new database service and kicked the web services.

What a surprise it actually all came back up just like it is supposed to.

I am in shock. Not only are all the forums back in place, the posts are there, the blogs are there and all the test user data is there too.

I call that one heck of a test. I am feeling a lot more confident in this process now. Especially since I moved this from a testing database to a production database service. ;-)

Excellent test of the services, the automation and the disaster recovery process.

Not to mention my testing database service can now be redirected to more serious poking and prodding for the layout of all the database models used for this service.
