Creating an archive backup (Sybase Central)

Use the Backup Database Wizard to create an archive backup, a collection of files that contains all the required information for the backup, including the main database file, transaction logs, and dbspaces. When you make an archive backup in Sybase Central, you can back up the database directly to tape or disk.


You must have the BACKUP DATABASE and VALIDATE ANY OBJECT system privileges.

  1. In Sybase Central, use the SQL Anywhere 16 plug-in to connect to the database.

  2. Validate the database. You can use the Validation utility or the sa_validate stored procedure.

  3. Right-click the database and click Backup Database.

  4. Follow the instructions in the wizard.


An archive backup is created.
