is there a way to stop a service from running on a remote server before it backs it up? we have act7 running a dedicated server. because it uses sql, the file is always considered Open when i try and back it up using arcserve. but because the file is open i cannot back it up. is there a way to stop the service from running before it backs it up? then restart the service once done? or will i have to run a scheduled task on the remote server to stop the service then an hour or so later, start the service.
