is there any possibility with the SnapCreator Domino Plug-in to configure Snapshots for "Partitioned" Domino Servers, i.e. that have more that one Domino instance (with their own 'data' directories each)?
I did not find any information in the Domino Plugin documentation & TR about this, only to configure a single instance.
So what we have is one Server, which has two Domino instances, so we would need set something like the following:
Is that possible somehow in the current version of SnapCreator?

Hi, thanks for the reply.
What is your recommended way to have partitioned Domino Servers backed up by SnapCreator?
Can I put the second Domino instance in backup mode with an additional quiesce command? What would be the best way to do this?

In case anyone being in the need to do the same in the future:
Using nested configurations is working good, calling configs for the other Domino Instances on the same server with the PRE_APP_QUIESCE_CMD on the SnapCreator Server.
However, this will lead to each Instance having its own snapshot, despite being on the same volume, because pure quiesce/unquiesce operations are not supported and can cause Domino to stop responding.
Is this bug something that will be fixed in future releases to have Domino Quiesce/Unquiesce working correctly when called independently or is this an inherent limitation of Domino itself?

While the crashing issue is fixed, overall this is a limitation of Domino.
Domino holds all of the information in a session.
Breaking operations into separate actions creates two different sessions.
Quiesce would work, but there would be no relationship to the separate unquiesce action as this would be a second session.
The result is that there would be no changeinfo details stored - Domino would not know about the different sessions.
After a restore operation a consistency check would occur.
Hope this helps,
