Our Basis team has now made us aware that they are intending to build the new PRD system from an online backup with two days transactions rolled in using archive logs.
I don't believe we have ever done this before. Is this an approved and 'safe' method of building a PRD system?
The only difference, in your case is that you are doing it on new system. This is an approved and safe method. In my opinion, doing a database restore with roll-forward is something which should be practised at least once a year. Many of my customers are doing this type of disaster/recovery exercise as much as twice a year.
