I'm doing ontape -s -L 0 to disk, and I got an error that the backup was looking for another tape, I increased the tape size to 15GB.
(the size of all my chunks put togeter is 13 GB)
Do I need to bounce the engine for this setting to take effect, or does the informix read that value of TAPESIZE when it does the backup?
Is there a limit of how much data can be backed up to disk?
Actually, when you are doing a backup to disk and reach the value of your tape size, informix asks you to "change the tape", so you can rename your backup file, create another file with the name of the first and press "enter", and the backup will continue.
So the tape file is not a real limit of the volume of data to be backed up, it just determines the file size.
