  • How to back up .NSF files through AS400 backup ???

    BRMS has a feature that will allow you to backup notes databases while they are in use. You might take a look at it. Here is the BRMS home page:
    We have Domino server (I believe ver 5.02 or 5.03) on an AS400 620 V4R3. Each night we use the "sav" command to back up changed objects to tape and it isn't feasable to enddomsvr prior to backup Here's the commands we use: sav dev('qsys.lib/tap01.devd')) + obj(('/notes/data/*.*')) savact(*yes) + output(*print) endopt(*leave) + chgperiod(*lastsave) updhst(*yes) monmsg msgid(cpf3823 cpf3837) sav dev('qsys.lib/tap01.devd')) + obj(('/notes/data/*.*')) savact(*yes) + output(*print) endopt(*leave) + chgperiod(*lastsave) updhst(*yes) What happen's is that usually 90% or more of the user.nsf mailfiles don't get backed up. The back up log shows an error message of CPFA09E indicating they were in use. We saw in a V4R4 redbook that there is a "saveactopt" that governs and option called "*alwchpwrt" which says that all object with the QP0L_ATTR_ALWCKPWRT system attribute set will be locked with O_SHRRDWR by the save and can be updated before the save while active checkpoint is reached. Could this mean that we just need to upgrade to V4R4 or V4R5? Has anyone else run in to this problem? Thanks for any ideas.

      Can you export database while it is running so that you can copy this to another server and is there a way to restore databese later from this export.
