In this blog post, we’re going to cover my most favorite/cool feature of ConfigMgr 2012. Recover a CAS server without using any site backup. The CAS server will retrieve the Global data and Global-Proxy data from the Primary Site Server database. Also, the CAS reinitializes the site data from the primary site.
I’m able to successfully recover my Central Administration Site -CAS (without using any site backup). Note that all these are done in LAB environment. Perform some testing before simulating it in production environment.
Now, In ConfigMgr 2012, the Recovery a Site option is part of Installation Wizard.
