Are ibays locked during restore?

Are ibays locked during restore?
« on: September 13, 2018, 03:21:32 PM »
Just had a brand new hard drive fail after 7 days and I'm restoring the overnight backup to the previous server which is as-it-was 7 days ago. The only changes between then and now will be a few emails, but whilst the restore is running I cannot login to the ibay shares. I just get bounced out to the username/password prompt.

Is this normal?

I don't know for sure but think it likely. If you are doing a full restore it will be updating users & passwords etc as well.

Preventing access saves any potential corruption.

Are you not running RAID?
1. Read the Manual
2. Read the Wiki
3. Don't ask for support on Unsupported versions
4. I have a job, wife, and kids and do this in my spare time. If you want something fixed, please help.
