I have searched Google and these forums but I'm still not clear if I can just use the dump command or if I have to set up backup servers in the interfaces file as shown here: http://www.sybase.ca/detail?id=20334
I am connected remotely to a sybase server that is on a UNIX machine. I do not have access to it's interfaces file. I am connected via Isql GUI on a windows client. Can I use the following command to get a backup on my Windows machine?
dump database mydb to "C:\mydb.dmp"
Also what is the performance penalty? I suppose I should run this in the off hours if possible?
