vc manual recovery

I would like to discuss about my manual recovery plan for VC.

To achieve it I will create a new VM server and will not install VC on it.

So when I need a recovery I can install virtual center and point the database during the installation of virtual center (when installer asked about the database).

Any one see any problem in this manual recovery solution.

Sure you can do that.  Would this VM be up and running all the time?  If you have a template already, you could have a new VM up in what 15-20 mins?  Install vCenter, connect the database and hosts and you're up in an hour? 

Or was all of this implied?

Thanks,

Jay

Hello,

maybe checking this vmware's kb will be helpful:

VMware KB: Migrating vCenter Server to a different host machine

VMware KB: Moving the VMware vCenter Server 4.x/5.x SQL database/

Hi Jay, I will deploy a VM and keep it down for the bad time and once I need it i can just install the virtual center and point my DB to the original DB.
