Use Backup Exec Open Files Option instead of Lotus Domino Agent

Hello!

Can I use Symantec Backup Exec Open Files Option instead of Lotus Domino Agent to backup Domino mail databases on Windows platform?

If yes, are there any serious drawbacks?

The thing is that I need to use Open Files Option to backup other open files on the same server where Domino is installed. So if I have to use Domino Agent then I have to install both on the same box. Is that OK?

Thanks!

IMHO: No. The Domino server has a (large) write-behind cache, so there is no use to backup open files. Whether you can install both agents on the same box I wouldn't know. I suppose you can tell the agent to include or exclude the Domino data directory?

I would also check with Symantec since it is their product about using multiple agents.

I hope this helps !

Ah! That's also in the help somewhere. Put a question in the Community Support area, with a link to this one, and request this question to be reopened (or the grade to be changed).

By the way, could you lift the curtain a little on the real problem and solution? Just for the record?

This issue with multiple agents is for our remote office so I really has no opportunity or time for testing and just needed "real life" answer / experience.

Your answer is reasonable and I agree with logic behind it but actually it doesn't solve my issue. So was my decision.

I understand. Next time, you can just say so and ask for the question to be deleted: you'll keep the points and we're spared for the inevitable C... ;-)
