MS NTBackup does not interact with the OS or other programs like Exchange to
lock files or start and stop services.


Remember, we are talking about a database file. 


Remember, NTBackup in Windows 2000 is a Lite version of Veritas backup that
is only meant to provide basic functions.


The online backup you see reference to is from within Exchange. It is not
from within NTBackup.

Maybe i'm misunderstanding what i've read from Microsoft - but i thought
that ntbackup on an Exchange server was supposed to be able to do online
backups.  No need to stop the Exchange server or services.  


Did I understand incorrectly, or am I just not doing it right?
