The dbbackup command may be run from a command line or from the OASIS GUI. The advantage of dbbackup is that the database may be copied to another computer without making a copy on the local server and may be run while others are using the system. (This should be used by IT professionals or advanced users only.)
To run dbbackup from a command line, create a script or open a command prompt and key “dbbackup -h" for help. A common use of the command is shown below that may be run at any time and from any computer on the local network:
c:\progra~1\oasis273\asa16\bin64\dbbackup -y -r -c dsn=oasis c:\oasis_backup
To run dbbackup from the OASIS GUI, select the “Configuration” folder, then select “Software”. Click on “Backup” under “Adaptive Server Anywhere”.
