Appendix – Repadm equivalents for PowerShell commands

Schedule-ReplicatorMap –BackupMode

The "Schedule-ReplicatorMap –BackupMode" option is equivalent to running the Backup-SPSite Powershell command. It backs up the local site collections' content, transports it, and then restores it on the remote farms.

Uses for BackupMode

BackupMode can be used in a DR environment when Replicator is enabled. Using this command and its frequency depends on a lot of factors like the size of the content, how often content changes, how up-to-date you want the DR site, etc.

This approach requires the following:

-The DR farm must be the same or a newer version of SharePoint.

-The source and target farms share the same Active Directory domain.

-The target site collection is an exact match of the source. i.e., you're not skipping events with rules or changing permissions on the target.

-One way replication from the primary site collection to the DR site collection. This command completely overwrites the DR site collection with the contents and settings from the primary one.

-Per Microsoft, the recommended maximum size for a site collection backup is 15 GB in SharePoint 2007 and 85 GB in SharePoint 2010.

-Per Microsoft, the site collection will be set to read-only for the duration of the backup to reduce the potential for user activity during the backup operation to corrupt the backup.
