Sybase 5 admin/backup utils?
Posted on 2006-07-21
I have discovered a legacy document handling app within a split organization that unfortunately for me is still required by data mining/report entry. It is a Sybase SQLanywhere 5x engine running on a XP box with the document apps running on some client apps connecting to two different .db's back on the Sybase machine. Sybase needs the local admin account logged in to start the 2 db processes in open windows for the client ODBC connections. My problem is that I need to automate either online backups or shutting down the 2 windows, starting a file copy batch job, and restart the 2 windows. There doesn't seem to be any backup utility embedded within Sybase/SQLanywhere.
Can anyone make any recommendations?
