Subject Verify Backup
Author Eddie Bush
Hello Everyone,

I have need to perform an invisible backup/restore to reduce user intervention for maintenance. The backup/restore is easy, but how can I actually, without human intervention, know that the operations completed successfully? I am currently using the Delphi Interbase Admin (Services API) components from IBX (v7.08), but I am not particularly beholden to these components if another component set would be better and is equally inexpensive.

Is anyone aware of a way to do this? I have thought about watching the output generated, but I'm not sure what I'd be watching for in the event of a backup/restore failure. I was hoping for an error code I could check, but I've yet to find it ...

Thanks so much!
