I am trying to make a backup of our database that is on a Unix box, from my windows computer.
I have used: Firebird Maestro, IP Firebird Database Manager, Firebird SQL Studio.I am not sure if I am doing something wrong, or just not possible.
When I run the backup from these tools, and select the database and final location and press start, it looks like it is going thru a backup process, but the fbk file is not created on my computer.
I am new to firebird and the GUI Tools that may be available.
Any assistance is appreciated.
I don't know any of these tools...
But I strongly suggest that you use the native firebird applications
use gbak for back-up (it's on the installation directory under the bin folder)
the most simple way is:
gbak IP_OF_THE_SERVER:NAME_OF_YOUR_DATABASE NAME_OF_BACKUP_FILE -user sysdba -password masterkey -v
of course change the password for the one you defined.
the -v switch is optional, but I think it will hep you once it will show the progress
see you !
