    questions about 2k3's new ability to backup open files using the backup
    utility. I know this feature uses the shadow copy technology but:

    1) do 'Shadow Copies' have to be enabled/configured on a volume for feature
    to work or does the backup utility handle this independantly?

    2) if answer to 1 is yes: do shadow copies have to be enabled on THE volume
    being backed up or just any volume on the source system?

    2b) what if one backup job covers several servers each with several hard
    drives each? do shadow copies need to be enabled/configured on all volumes
    being backed up on all the servers?

    needing clarification,

  2. No VSS doesn't need ot be preconfigured or enable for the NTBackup utillity
    to use VSS backups.....
