There are two kinds of databases: configuration databases (ConfigDB) and determination databases.
They can easily be copied (e.g., onto CD-ROM for backup purposes) and restored at the new location.
However, please note the following: If the databases are opened, they are blocked for processing (deleting, overwriting, copying, etc.). ConfigDB is always opened by the tiamo services (Metrohm tiamo Admin Server and Metrohm tiamo server) − the other databases are opened only if tiamo or a backup is running.
Therefore, tiamo must be closed, and the backup server and the tiamo services must be stopped before you carry out any file operations. Bear in mind that for normal users the paths made available by tiamo (backup and restore) should be used.
