    Arrow Unanswered: Informix DB Backup Query

    Hi Fellows,
    I want to take backup on tape of our server in which informix database is running.

    This is the output of our onconfig file:
    #TAPEDEV /dev/null # Tape device path
    #TAPEDEV # Tape device path
    TAPEDEV C:/DR.dat

    Now if I want to take backup on tape then should I un-hash the first two commands or only second command???
    Also please share that is there any need to make a file on tape before starting backup as we create file with 660 permissions while taking backup on drive?

    Just uncomment the second line.

    Assuming /dev/st0 id the tape drive there is no reason to create a file.
