I’m just implementing a backup script for our self-hosted Mender server (backing up to S3) following the commands outlined here: Backup and restore | Mender documentation
I was just wondering about the requirement for the docker containers to be turned off during the backup process. I don’t have any experience with Mongo, but it seems strange to need to turn off a production system to be able to do a backup. Surely there is a way to do the backup while Mender keeps running?
Any insight into why this needs to happen would be greatly appreciated
