Consider this before CUCM Cluster Restore

Checking and Restarting DRS in CUCM

 

Something to be checked before restoring a CUCM cluster,  are the Disaster Recovery Service (DRS) related services running.

If one of the subscriber nodes or any node for that matter is not in a good state this can lead to a failed restore.

I prefer use of the CUCM CLI for this activity so here are the steps:

Check all nodes to be sure the DRF Local and DRF Master service are started.

  • utils service list

Steps to ensure the DRF services are started.

  • To be done on all nodes – utils service stop Cisco DRF Local
  • To be done on all nodes – utils service start Cisco DRF Local
  • To be done on Publisher – utils service stop Cisco DRF Master
  • To be done on Publisher – utils service start Cisco DRF Master
