What programs will back up Notes databases without needing a Notes server shutdown?

* Cheyenne ArcServe has a Notes agent which lets it back up open databases. The agent requires a "work area" of the size of your largest Notes database because it creates a replica of a database into a separate directory before backing up that database.
* Tivoli TSM (formerly IBM's ADSM) will back up open files and can back up databases incrementally.
* Veritas's Backup Exec with the Open File Option (they also have a Domino agent).
* Quadratec's Time Navigator can do full and incremental backups
* Unix's tar (and ports of it to other platforms like NT and OS/2) will back up open files.
