Where can i get information about "Disaster scenarios" in QA
testing. IS there any site which can provide all the information
about disaster scenarios? I will be glad if someone can help me out !!
Re: Disaster scenarios
Check out http://www.drj.com/ (Disaster Recovery Journal) for articles, reports and vendors. They also have a new2DR section and sample DR plans.

If you are asking about disaster recovery, consider Googling
(searching) for such keywords as 'Business Continuity Planning'
or 'Disaster Recovery', possibly combined with 'Quality Assurance'.
From my past experience as a DB2 DBA I can say that any DR plan worth
doing is worth overdoing. It takes a lot of effort to put together a
document that describes everything that must be done to bring a DB2
subsystem to the point where batch and online systems can resume
operations. But when you have finally got the procedures down to a
science and you fly to the DR site with the rest of the DR team, when
the pressure is on and hundreds of thousands of dollars are committed
to you and your ability to recover your subsystem, that document is
worth its weight in platinum. To get there will require the total
commitment from executive management to push the concept down to all
levels of the organization. In any environment larger than small
office, done correctly, BRP is a major undertaking and takes
thousands of manhours to research, develop, test, test and retest and
then test on a regular basis. Each system or area of responsibility
will need to be thoroughly documented so that anybody could read the
DR script and be able to bring that system back online.
The use of automated testing tools could be fairly useful in testing
the online systems/applications in order speed
verification/validation along, I suppose. I would be mindful of the
return on investment in generating and maintaining those scripts.
Besides, the user community is generally involved at that point of
the test and their signoff on the system being useable is what the DR
test is all about.
Does anyone else have an opinion or see the use of tools in a DR
