Mark recently wrote the editors of Search400.com with this question. He writes, "I seem to running out of time when I try to backup some Domino servers. "I use BRMS, and when it was setup it was never told to drop the Domino servers, so in essence I believe I have a Save while active. "I was wondering if it is possible to shut down the servers one by one and create a SAVF for each server, then restart the server and either save or transfer the SAVF to another system at a later time." What do you think? -- Michelle Davidson, editor, Search400.com

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There is a parameter in the Notes.INI file that I would suggest checking to see if you can improve the performance of the backup. By default, BRMS backs up 5 Lotus Server databases at a time. By increasing this number, you can reduce the overall save time considerably. The parameter to check is SAVDOMBRM_FILES_IN_GROUP=xx. I have found that 30 seems to be a good number. You can start with that and increase/decrease it until you achieve the results you are looking for.
