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)
  • If you are using the dbbackup utility, use the following syntax:

    dbbackup -c "connection-string" [ -t ] backup-directory

    Include the -t option only if you are making an incremental backup. See Incremental backups.
