3.8. How do I release the database file locks so I can back them up?

On a command prompt you need to run 'pcm admin begin-backup'. If you have multiple connections then you first need to specify the connection you want pcm to use. If you want to run this command without creating a connection then you can specify the server details manually with the --server, --user and --password flags (type 'pcm help admin begin-backup' for full details).

This will lock the purecm database so other users cannot use it.

You can then take a backup of the PureCM database files.

When the backup is complete you need to run 'pcm admin end-backup' to release the purecm database lock.

Note that you must have the 'Backup Administrator' policy enabled to use these commands.
