Currently the daisy-backup-tool brakes if the repository server is not running.
Tracing the error-message I noticed this somewhat strange quirk:
- daisy-backup-tool needs the running server to be able to request a lock (over jmx) to it. This is to make sure that the backup is created over a consistent state of blobstore, indexstrore and mysql metadata
- however if the server is NOT running, then this consistent state is also guaranteed, so the fact that we can't get a lock (since the server isn't running) in this case should NOT prevent is from taking the backup.
In other words: it would be nice if the backup-tool can do his useful job in both cases.
(unless I'm missing some other important need for a running server to backup?)
