Description:
Is it possible to backup StarTeam while the server is running?


Answer/Solution:

It is possible to backup the StarTeam data in the repository without shutting down or locking the server. Since the server is never locked, full functionality remains available during the backup.

The recommended backup process is pretty simple. Backup the database using the tools included with the database software, and then do a data backup of the repository. Make sure to backup the starteam-server-configs.xml file from the Server program files folder every once in a while, usually only if changes are made to the server configuration.
