    Question Unanswered: DB Backup

    Hi there,
    I have to build a script to make some DB backups on a tape drive over a network and I'm not sure how to do it (with the isql scripts and that lot).

    My machine is on Win NT 4.0 Server and I have to copy and backup some DB's on another machine on the network.

    I don't know what other information I should add, but feel free to ask any question that might help you solve my problem.

    Thanx

    Hiya,

    If you are intending to do backups remotely, then you have 2 choices

    1. Use the remoter server option
    2. Use backup server 12.5 compress and dump it locally and then ftp(or move) the file across teh network.

    Option 2, is popular amongst DBA's

    Here are some sites, that might help you out with writing those scripts
