Good morning

Can somebody share with me experience hoe to backup Wily Introscope EM 8.x ??
We have implementation delivered directly from SAP and in documents is mentioned/recommended these steps how to backup EM:

SAP Recommendation for EM Backup:
Wily supports only Offline backup with the following procedure
• Shutdown Enterprise Manager,
• Backup SmartStor (file backup)
• The directory „../data - contains all agent data
• The directory „../traces - contains all Wily trace data.
• Restart Enterprise Manage

Is it really true, that 24x7 monitoring tool can be backup in off-line mode only?? Has anybody experience how to backup or how to solve this issue?? Unfortunately neither we are using clustering nor any features provided by 3rd party HW vendors

thanks a lot in advance for any idea..
