Subject unattended firebird backup
Author p_b_turner
Hi all,

Looking for a solution where I can backup a Firebird 1.5 database
unattended using gbak. I've tried a scheduled batch file, scheduled
app, and a service app, all with the same result. if i'm logged in,
all work fine. if i'm logged out, none run. if i lock the terminal,
it works. came across a discussion (message 65333, etc.) where it
talks about adding localhost: to the path of the database. tried
this with no luck.

this is currently being developed on Windows XP, but would like
something that would run across various Windows platforms (98, 2000,
2003, XP, Vista) - which is why I was leaning towards the task

note: all path references in apps and batch files are fully qualified
(eg. c:\directory\...., no "assumed" paths).

Any thoughts, suggestions, comments would be welcome.
