Don't forget that it may take some time for any changes to the DNS records to propagate (i.e. the TTL) ... and depending on how your recovery system has been set up (hot vs cold ... real-time vs batch mirroring), and what your disaster was, the recovery system may not be up-to-date with changes on the original system, so you may have some reconciliation to do during the changeover, i.e. YMMV. -- David Somers typographer/programmer/whatever
