We have clients who take image backups of their machines and this is fine. Just keep in mind that if the backup is running when RTC is also running, you may run into some issues.

We use a set of powershell scrips to create DB2 backups every night. Script is run thru Task Scheduler. The script creates a \backup\<date> directory, stops the JTS, backs up the databases, starts the JTS, creates a restore-script with the correct timestamps, zips the directory to <date>.zip and deletes the \backup\<date> directory. It also deletes <date>.zips older than 14 days.

The restore script stops the JTS, restores the databasese, does a resetLockID on JTS and starts the JTS. 
Works fine.
