You can't do that with FBBackupManager. FBBackupManager can only create
a serverside backup. If you want a clientside backup, you can use
FBStreamingBackupManager introduced in Jaybird 3. It has the same API
(defined in interface BackupManager), but it allows streaming the backup
from server to client (or the restore from client to server).
