So, it looks like I will have to backup the db in phases.
1. Backup client-specific tables
mysqldump --single-transaction -u root clientdb table_M1 table_M
table_MX --where="FLD_CLIENT_ID=1" > client1_dbbackup.sql
2. Then append the other tables to the backup.
mysqldump --single-transaction -u root clientdb table_N1 table_N2 table_NX
However, this means that I cannot take a backup when the system is up and
Any other ideas, folks?
