Automatic backup solutions for Lotus Notes

I want to Implement automatic backup of Lotus Notes for NT as well as HP-UNIX. Is there any script that can be written in NT and For HP-Unix?
There are many backup solutions available for Notes and Domino. If you want to take advantage of the free products that come with the OS, you will need to write a script that stops Domino during your backup window. Then you will need another script to restart Domino in the morning. This is because a majority of Domino files are open when Domino is running. You really should get a backup product that has an open file option specifically designed for Lotus Domino. Some options are Tivoli, NetBackup, BackupExec, Legato and Commvault Galaxy.
