Can someone supply me with the syntx for DBEXPORT?
The dbexport syntax for exporting a database from an Informix environment to a file system is ....dbexport 'database_name' -ss -q.
The -ss is server side scripts, so everything associated with this database will be exported out to you choosen area on the file sytem. -q just means 'go and do it and return when your done.
If you are exporting many databases it might be wise to prefix this command with "time", so measurements can be taken.
The import command is:... dbimport 'database_name' -q -d 'dbspacename' -l buffered.
-l is for logged and buffered is self explanitary. Both are at your discretion.
