I have a question related to an earlier question below.


http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qManageQuestion.jsp?ta=winnt&qid=20325048


I have created a batch file to stop Norton Antivirus services before a backup job runs using NET STOP and a post backup batch file runs using NET START  to restart Norton.

My concern is being naked of virus protection during the 3 to 4 hour backup.

Is there a particular service(s) I can STOP that will prevent any network traffic from accessing the server during the backup.

Or other ideas???

you can stop the server service, BUT, I would test thoroughly before implementing that change.  The backup might possible rely on the server service.  Clients would not be able to access the server etc.

>>that will prevent any network traffic from accessing the server

You could - apart from stopping a service - use 'net share' to limit the number of 'allowed users' to 0 and set it to the appropriate value (or /unlimited) later again, e.g.

net share HOMEDIRS /users:0

#Do backup

net share HOMEDIRS /users /unlimited

To disallow new connections (except for admins):

net pause netlogon

To disconnect active sessions:

net session /delete

To allow new connections again:

net continue netlogon

Thanks, but in the interim the server was replaced becuase of disk controller issues. but I'm awarding points as promised for the quick repsonses. Yours seemed most relevant though I never had to impliment it.

Thanks again....
