I recently moved all my users from proprietary wemail (using local sendmail) to latest cyrus and sendmail using lmtp.

I used to use tivoli to backup the old server (which was ok since no data bases were involved)... but since cyrus has databases and such, I am concern about file-locking and database corruption.

What is the best way to back up the server? shutdown cyrus for a while, then snap shot it, and then back up to tivoli.... or should I just be able to back up the running server directly to tivoli?

what other software can I use to backup?
