Subject RE: [firebird-support] Embedded and Services Manager on Windows
Author Alan McDonald

Hello Group,
Is it possible to take a backup of a 2.5 database whilst it is running in embedded mode (Windows) and whilst that application is otherwise connected to the database using the services manager (just like you can on the full server)?

I am presently getting an exception that the database is opened by another engine instance but process explorer only identifies my application as having a handle to it.


I do backups all the time while connected in embedded. I use the IBOBackupService component. I don’t know how you are actually doing the backup
