Hello All,

I just want to verify some questions I have regarding backup of a ZCM primary server. I have read the docs but they leave quite a bit to be desired when it comes to backup. Information is all over the place and in some cases not complete.

Do I need to take any of the ZCM processes off-line in order to perform a backup of the repository? Or can this be done hot with all processes active?

In my case we will be performing a mount of a NetWare server via CIFS from our ZCM primary server (SLES10SP3 x64) and performing an rsync of the local path to the mounted location. Any issues with this scenario?

FYI: I am performing daily database backups. I have also taken zenserver and CA cert backups and stored them for safe keeping.

Thanks in advance for your time.
