Since it came around on the server there have been a lot of problems with file locks. One big problem is that it won't let go of the DAOS files.
I give you an extract from the Ahsay Online Backup Manager User Guide:
iii. Shutdown Lotus Domino Server
v. If you just want to restore a single database:
a. Download the database file to be restored from AhsayOBS and save them back to its original
b. (optional) If you need to perform media recovery on this database, please download all
archived transaction logs and save them back to its original location
c. Modify the “DominoRecover.bat” located under the bin directory of the AhsayOBM installation
to reflect your setup.
f. Restart Lotus Domino Server
I would not call that a very great implementation of online backup/restore !!!
From that experience I would not recommend you to use it.
Now I really need to come up with a suggestion for a good replacement, and they think TSM is too expensive.
This does not mean that Ahsay is bad for other types of backup/restore.
