    Unanswered: Informix BackUp in CentOS linux

    Hello All,

    Can anyone please help me with the syntax for backing up informix data files on to tape ? How can this be included in a script to run every mid night ?

    Thanks in advance.

    The basic syntax for backing up informix is

    ontape -s -L0 <tape device>

    So if your tape device is /dev/rmt0, your command will be

    ontape -s -L0 /dev/rmt0

    ----
    If you want it to run a backup every night, use unix crontab to set a specific time to run the command above.
