This is the intended behaviour, the database needs to be running in order for the mongodump utility to be able to connect to it and perform a backup.
Note: Only the database needs to be running, so you can run cryosparcm stop to turn off all cryoSPARC services, then run the command cryosparcm start database to only start the database.
You’re correct- thanks for pointing that out. The backup command should be able to work even if cryoSPARC has been stopped/already started. A fix will be released in the next version of cryoSPARC.
