Approximately how long does the process take to backup a server site?

Can it be run while the server is in use without negatively impacting ArcGIS Server performance?

Hi Claire,

I don't believe there is a "good" accurate answer. The time will depend on the number of web services in your Server site, the complexity of the site (e.g., single machine vs. multi-machine), if high availability is enabled, your network configurations, etc.
