Q: Do we really need to stop services before backup? I think we use LVM to create a snapshot of the filesystem so we can back it up in the background (while other tasks are running).

Replying to landauf:

Yes, you are right.

Now the tar command in the backup.cron script is not verbose, and will only inform about errors! ⇒ huge emails are not sent anymore.
