The solution consists of two scripts that can be integrated in the file system and IDB backups of the Cell Manager. The purpose is to run the file system backup of the Cell Manager before the IDB backup and create the Recovery Media (ISO) at the end of the process. The result will be an EADR image that can be used to recover the entire Cell Manager offline including the IDB to the latest point in time. The backup data is read from the backup device in the process.
