    Cool Bit of work to do

    Follow the IBM Informix system adminsitration course (Windows version)

    Create yourself a backup strategy (when full, cumulative, incremental, how much downtime allowed, how much data loss allowed, what is the budget ).

    Read the
    -IBM Informix Backup and Restore Guide 9.4
    -IBM INformix Storage Manager Adminsitrator's Guide 9.4

    you can find them on

    Start writing backup scripts
    Start writing restore scripts
    Test them
    Implement them

    Hi I'm in the windows environment and here is how I did it.

    I wrote a couple of scripts to backup logical logs and to do a level 0.
    Every night I stop a logical log backup via a script a have on the scheduler
    then do a chekpoint, then start a logical log backup again and then start a level 0 right behind it. Everything is done by scripts and gets kicked of in the scheduler
