Recovering IdM after a server or data loss

Red Hat Customer Content Services


Server and data loss scenarios, for example due to a hardware failure, are the highest risks in IT environments. In case of such an event in a Red Hat Identity Management (IdM) environment, the recovery process depends on the type of problem, the IdM topology, and the actions that have been taken to mitigate such situations.
For example, you can recover single and multiple servers in an IdM replication topology, and you can recover data by using IdM backups and snapshots. During or after the recovery, it can be necessary to adjust client settings, such as DNS servers and the Kerberos configuration.
