Following are the requirements for backing up Lotus Domino database files residing on the media server, or for remote Windows computers and workstations.

If the Lotus Domino files you want to back up are on the local media server, the server must have the following:

  • Backup Exec

  • An Intel-compatible processor

  • The Lotus Domino data directory on the Lotus Domino server

If the Lotus Domino files you want to back up are on a remote computer, the remote computer must have the following:

  • Windows operating system

  • Backup Exec Remote Agent for Windows Systems

  • An Intel-compatible processor

  • Corresponding Windows Administrative Share for each volume that contains Lotus Domino databases

  • The Lotus Domino data directory on the Lotus Domino server

The following are required to back up Lotus Domino transaction logs:

  • Archive-style transaction logging must be enabled to perform differential and incremental backups and to perform point in time recovery.

  • The Lotus Domino logging style must be set to archive if you want to back up the transaction logs.

The following are required to back up Lotus Domino DAOS-related NLO files:

  • The DAOS state must be in read-only mode or enabled.
