I've been digging around in the Backup and Recover section of Info Center trying to find a concise list of what functions have to be shut down (without doing a full restricted state) to backup which IFS folders.

Some of this can be found in the documentation for each function, but it seems that there should be a single list in one place that says:

WAS V6 #instance# has to be shut down to backup QIBM/UserData/WebSphere/AppServer/V6/Base/profiles/SYSINST/tranlog/LOCAL/LOCAL/#instance#

*HTTP *ADMIN has to be shut down to backup /QIBM/UserData/HTTPA/admin/

*HTTP #usersite# has to be shut down to backup the folder configured in the #usersite# to contain the logs

*NTP has to be shut down to backup /QIBM/USERDATA/OS400/TCPIP/NTP/

*DHCP has to be shut down to backup /QIBM/UserData/OS400/DHCP/

*DNS has to be shut down to backup /QIBM/UserData/OS400/DNS/

This would help in designing a backup strategy to minimize what you consider key function's down time by only shutting them down, backup and restart them. It would also help figure out what caused the job log entry for a lock on /QIBM/UserData/Eclipse/workspace/*

Have I completely missed reading the center and this lists exists?
