    Unanswered: Sybase SQL anywhere backup

    Hi,

    I have an ADP application running Sybase SQL Anywhere Version 5.5.04 Build #1982. I am running the app on a Windows 2000 Server with 4 workstations connecting to it. The DB is constantly running and when I backup the server with the Windows backup, the DB fails to backup. Does anyone know of a good backup software with a Sybase agent that will backup the DB at night while it is still running?

    Thanks,
    Ken

    The windows backup will most certainly fail when performed while the Sybase SQL Any db engine running.

    You have 2 choices, either use the dbbackup utility in SQL Anywhere or shutdown SQL Any db engine and backup the .db and .log files from Windows.

    Thanks! I'll give the dbbackup utility a try.
