800xA System Restore on Redundant Servers
I have configured 800xA redundant servers such as SER-DCS-1 as primary and SER-DCS-2 standby (combined with Ascpect and connectivity on same server). Both servers are working find. Every service is in service with other on standby.
Now i have to restore my updated system on above redundant servers. i am confused either i will have to perform restore activity on primary server (SER-DCS-1) or on both servers one by one. Please share step by step procedure to restore system on redundant server. before proceeding this activity i need to clear my understanding. As this activity is to be performed in limited time slot as commissioning is in progress.
Thanking you in advance for valuable support.

1. Read existing documentation - what you are asking for *is* documented!
2. Restore only in first aspect server, but delete any existing system first
3. Other nodes must be "dismembered"; use Wizard or *
4. After restore, use "Connect node" locally in Wizard of each node, or use "Connect node" button in Node Admin Structure's Node Definition aspect of each node
*) System can also be manually removed by erasing a registry key + OperateITxxxx folders. Search AKS for info!
Avoid deleting and adding nodes from/to a system! Use "Connect" to rejoin. This preserve affinity and service provider order in service groups. It is sometimes crucial to know the "primary" in a service group; name is not telling you who is primary - the order of service providers within a group is key to do this! First listed is primary. Deleting first make previous second new primary...
It depends on many things - what kind of Backup do you have, what version of 800xA e.t.c.
A good explanation you can find in system documentation (installed also in the servers) - what I found very easy in google is System 800xA Maintenance,
Easyest way is if you have a full backup, then you can start restore service from configuration wizzard
