Is there a way to automate the informix backup to file like putting a tbtape command in a sh script? what will be the syntax for tbtape to backup the database to file, had a look at the online doc's but nothing there! any one tried this on Informix Online 5.10.UC1.
that works for the first carraige return that ontape asks for, how about if you have a database that needs more than 1 tape (4 or 5). I'm sending my backup to disk, I'm using an older version of informix which can't read files bigger than 2 gigs so I have to find a way to create a script that will notice when ontape asks for the next tape, moves the file that was already created to another location and sends the carriage return so ontape can continue with the backup.
