How do you handle disaster recovery for your PPM server?
We recently setup another PPM prod 9.14 environment running on Linux. We ran a disaster recovery test recently and encountered a small issue with the environment passwords. Our plan was to copy the PROD Oracle DB/schema to our non prod PPM server. While this does work, the envionment passwords did not due to encryption key differences. Reading Ch 10 in the Installation guide, suggests different options to migrate to another server. We had planned on the option below. Has anyone ran into this problem? Re-entering all the environment passwords manualy duing a disaster is not an opion as we have hundreds of different passwords. Suggestions?
Migrate the database schemas, but maintain the existing PPM Server.
Migrating only the database schema does not require a new license key.

You need to copy the keys located on our prod PPM folder to your non Prod environment. If is use for non replication purpouse I recommend you too change all users passwords by one default and update your environments also.
