1. I am creating a "one-off" Filesystem backup of multiple drives on multiple clients. I am setting this to occur at some point in the future, but when I click the "Start Backup" Button the backup begins straight away, it doesn't wait for the "future" time I've set it for.
2. We have the "OmniBack II Online Extension for Windows NT" license installed. I was of the impression that with this we would be able to do Backups while other packages were still running, but I am getting errors during backups indicating that a "File is in use by another part of the system and will not be backed up". What am I missing?
Please accept my apologies for using your valuable time on such piddling issues and my sincerest thanks for any and all assistance provided.

To your first question:
If you set a start date in future for a backup specification the start is automatically controlled by the OmniBack scheduler (so you must not start the backup manually). On HP-UX the scheduler job is the proccess omnitrig - on NT i don't know exacly which service do the schedule job (may be cds.exe or rds.exe)
Your second question:
The "OmniBack II Online Extension for Windows NT" Licence (B6955AA (NT) or B6965AA (UNIX)) allows online backups of databases such as oracle, informix, sql server (see Integration Guide) and has no optional feature for backing up flat files which are in an opened state by the NT-Operating system.
