Hi Anderson,

You can use repotools-<app> -backupJFSIndexes to backup text indices and work item indices and this command must be run with the server online.

See Repository tools command to back up Jazz Foundation Service indexes

Looking at I found this information:
- Fulltext index: there is no way of ensuring a consistent backup of the files of this indexing technology without performing a server shutdown.

Same information at

So to make a backup of Fulltext index a shutdown is necessary.
