Subject RE: [ib-support] Interbase Backup
Author Thomas Steinmaurer
An example out of the documentation (jupiter is the server name).

The next example restores a multifile database from the /backup directory of
jupiter to the
/companydb directory of jupiter. This command runs on the server by invoking
Manager, thus saving time and network traffic. In this example, the first
two files of the
restored database are 500 pages long and the last file grows as needed.

gbak -r user -joe -pa blurf@ -se jupiter:service_mgr /backup/foo1.gbk
/backup/foo2.gbk /backup/fooLast.gbk /companydb/foo1.gdb 500
/companydb/foo2.gdb 500 /companydb/fooLast.gdb
