True one. Last Friday one of my clients call me 11:30 AM. Client: Luis, I need you. We have a problem. No one can reach the server. The hardware/software guy said: We have virus. Luis: So?. Remove them. There is not risk for Databases. Client: Luis, as you already know, we made 800 invoices a day, the call center are taking by hand. The guy, let call him Doe, is working since 7.00AM and we are in the same situation, and we were working since 5:00 AM until the problem. Luis: OK. Wait for me. (I live 20 miles away from there, crossing all downtown, rush hour all the time). 1:00 PM. Luis: OK Doe, what do you have? Doe: No one WS can't reach the Server even with Ping. From the Server I can't reach any other WS or any other Server. Also I can't COPY or PASTE, there is nothing in My Network Places (properties), the tape backup is gone (or at least drivers), the CD/DVE also. As you know we have other small Server with SQL (same version, fix, etc., because you) but, I can't copy any backup to that server. No network, no CD/DVD, no tape and I have one 8GB pendrive but there is no room for 2 databases with 70GB databases backup. And I don't have one biggggggg pendrive, I can't COPY and PASTE. The virus killed everything!!!!!!. Luis: So, what is your recommendation?. Doe: Install fresh copy of W3k, tape backup, SQL (Job's Luis), etc. and back to the last backup (yesterday night). Luis: Nope. The SQL is working fine. So, I'm going to have the last backup, copy to the other server, restore it, change the call center access to the old server, same thing with traffic people and after that, we begin with new installation in the big server. Doe: And how you are planning to copy the backup?. Are you deaf?. With which media?. There is no chance to install an IDE disk. Luis: I'm 59 years old, so I'm some deaf. Let me work. 4:00 PM. The call center and traffic begin to work with the old server. 4:10 PM We begin with the new installation. Saturday, 2:00AM I went to home with the new server working (I left my invoice, of course). Forget Replication, log shipping, etc. There is no many for that. Question: What was my solution?
