Hi

We have a Lotus Domino Server 5.02b/Windows NT 4 with SP 6 and 450 users that use the NotesKlient.

During nights the servers filesystem i backuped to tape with BackupExec.

Om monday a persons maildatabase was locked by another process and he was unable to read his mail. The message displayed in a frame that ought to show the new mail. I restarted the server and he was then able to see his mail.

On tuesdag the same problem occur, but with another person.

Something must be wrong, but what?

Nothing is wrong. Backup exec locks the files normally during backup. If you are not using an Open File manager Agent then this could lock out a user whule the files is backed up. Another option is to set the locking option in the job. It should be  Set  in the advanced tab - Use Open file option if available, else - yes WITHOUT a lock.
This is Veritas V 7.3 backup exec. I personally use OFM from ST. Bernard software.

I hope this helps.

We have experienced the same problem and it's usually because the person comes in early (before the back-up is done) and opens their e-mail file just before the backup begins backing up his mail file.  I think another possibility is if they have created an agent in their mail file that is running at the same time as the back-up.
