I think this is long overdue now. Please IBM, give us VSS for Domino ?
I'm so tired of always having to create Freeze/Thaw scripts stop/start the Domino-service before a backup. Pretty much every serious application on Windows supports it (DB2, Oracle, SQL, Exchange, etc....) and has done so the last 5 years.
In these virtualized days it's needed to get consistent off-site replica's of Virtual Machines. We don't do backup in-host anymore, it's all being done with VCB/vStorage API's
