Everything is possible depending on your time and budget.

Based on your explanation it'd be simpler to take all the repositories
offline and ZIP them and bring them back online and back up the ZIP
file.  Or XCOPY if you don't like ZIP...

Alternatively March Hare Software Professional Support can show you how
to configure multiple servers with synchronisation - and you'd just take
one server offline and back it up so your system is never down.

Subject: [cvsnt] Multiple CVSNT Instances

Is it possible to run multiple CVSNT instances on the same server with
instance managing a different set of Repositories?

We have a single multiprocessor server running a single CVSNT instance
manages about 15 separate repositories. The issue we have is our IT 
department want to ensure a clean backup is taken each night and shut
CVSNT to perform the backup which currently takes between 1 and 2 hours.

Since we are a global development shop, this isn't very helpful to our 

If we could run say 5 separate CVSNT instances (and I assume 5
instances as well?), each one managing separate sets of repositories, we

could setup the backup processes to only shutdown part of the server,
those repositories and restart. It would bring each individual
backup time down to 10-15 minutes max (much more manageable) and allow
us to 
stagger when different repositories are backed up (ie: the ones most
used by 
the US for example would backup during US nightime while the NZ/AU 
repositories would backup during NZ/AU nighttime).

Any ideas or thoughts?
