Subject gbak with -se switch?
Author Martijn Tonies (Upscene Productions)
Hi all,
I’m trying to back up a database using gbak and the –se switch. But can’t seem to get it working.
Here’s the command:
C:\Program Files\Firebird\Firebird_3_0>gbak -b -m -t -se service_mgr –v
   -user sysdba -pas masterkey
  "MARTIJN-WS-DEV/3054:e:\temp\2014 FB Conference.fdb"
  "e:\temp\2014 FB Conference.bak"
gbak: ERROR:multiple sources or destinations specified
gbak: ERROR:    Exiting before completion due to errors
gbak:Exiting before completion due to errors
Firebird 3 fails to back up when the database is in use, to I need to use the –se switch. But I can’t get it working, any clue?
With regards,
