    Hi,
    can you please describe what is the problem at first place. Why don't you make a scheduler which makes backups by itself?

    i want my solaris database copy to be on a windows server. But as there is no compatibility between the backups on different platform, I cant restore the backup taken from solaris to windows. So i thought i would try to take a remote backup from windows to solaris...but i think that also not possible. I tried it.

    Hi,
    there is no backup/restore compatibility from Solaris to Windows. The only supported way is to have db2lookup to get definitions and db2move to move data.
