How to stop maxDB consistent (Windows)

Hi experts,

I've one question, if we would like to make a snapshot of a server the DB needs to be consistent.

Is it therefore enough to stop the DB via DB Studio (set offline) or are there further services which I need to stop?

Like at sybase, there you also need to stop some services.

Thank you

    • Hi Christian,

      I think your question is best addressed at VM / OS level. In general, if the VM snapshot guarantees that the I/O is consistent after the snapshot, then you probably should be fine (but this is at your own risk...).

      If you are an SAP customer, have a look at SAP note 616814 discussing the MaxDB 'suspend logwriter' command used for cases when the OS / storage system cannot ensure a consistent point in time image.
