Use the Backup utility (dbbackup) to make a server-side backup

This topic describes a backup that leaves the transaction log untouched. For information about other transaction log management options when making a backup, see Backup utility (dbbackup).

The dbbackup utility makes an image backup that consists of a copy of the database file and/or the transaction log, each as separate files.

To make a backup, continuing to use the original transaction log (command line)

The following example makes a backup on the database server computer in the directory c:\SQLAnybackup.

dbbackup -s -c "ENG=sample_server;DBN=demo;UID=DBA;PWD=sql" "c:\SQLAnybackup"
