Restoring Celiveo 8 Databases

By default, all Celiveo 8 databases are  hosted on one server. If this server fails, or is unable to connect to  the network, these databases must be restored to a different server.

The host name of the replacement server should be the same as that of the server that crashed. If the host name is different, all Celiveo Virtual Printer clients must be reconfigured to work with the new database server. 

The procedures outlined below uses SQL Server Management Studio as  the database management tool, and assumes that the databases have been  backed up to *.bak files.  SQL Server Management Studio is a free tool,  which you can download from  If you do not use SQL Server Management Studio, use these instructions  only as a guideline to update your disaster recovery documentation.
