I saw today an issue, on NAV SQL, where when they are creating a NAV backup (the nromal NAV backup from within NAV, not hotcopy, and not SQL backup), that its not possible to insert records.
In this particular case the Admin was creating a NAV backup, and a user was trying to create an Item, but got a message “You can not create the record because the Item Table is locked, please wait”. If the Admin aborts the Nav backup, then the Itme inserts no problem.
Is this normal? SQ
(PS this is not my job, and I am not going to fix it, someone else is working on that), I am just curious as to why a backup is locking the Item Table. And yes they do plan to move to SQL backups, so the issue will go away in the end.
