Backing up a Lotus Domino server that is on a VPS

I'm running a Lotus Domino 8.5 server on a W2k3 VPS (Plesk).

There is a feature that allows me to take a backup and seems to just take an image while the server is running.

Does anyone have any experience with this as I'm wondering if it will actually restore if I've not shut the Domino Server down?

Thanks

Although most of the times it works (you're able to open databases) there are times when it doesn't work and the databases become corrupt.
So, in order to be sure, use Net Stop (to stop the Domino service) and Net Start to start it, after the beckup finishes.

Use the exact name that's listed in Windows Services.
Use the BAT files to run the commands.
