Hi everyone!

I'm a brand new Architect and still have a lot to learn.


I am about to execute the script that will push my database in Aris Business Publisher. Before that, I'm backuping the database to have a copy "just in case".

Because I'm not sure of the behavior of the whole thing if a Designer is working on a model while I do all that, could you tell me:

1- How to find out which are the models currently opened within my database?

2- Does it have any impact if a model is in use while I execute a script or do a backup?

I wish I knew how to do that... Anyone?

Dear Mr. H H,

Don't be shy to show your name. We all started at some point in time as newbies. ;-)

1) With ARIS Admintool you can check on ARIS Business Server if users is online in which database using which client version:

More about this tool and other helpers on the server side you can read in the ARIS documentation, either on your product installation DVD or online:


The ARIS Server Installation and Administration Guide is where you should start reading and learning.

2) I wouldn't run any maintenance or publishing task while users are still within the same database. You never know which interims version you will get.

Hope this helps you.

Great! I'll look into that straight away!

Thanks for the prompt answer.
