12.0 Backing Up the External Sybase Database

When an external Sybase database (Remote OEM Sybase or Remote Sybase SQL Anywhere) has been installed by using the ZENworks installation media, you can back it up to a directory on the local machine or to a network location.

This documentation provides instructions to back up the external Sybase database by using the DBISQL utility. You can choose to back up the database by using any other utility that is recommended in the Sybase SQL Anywhere documentation.

IMPORTANT:If the database is located on a ZENworks Server, you must first restore the ZENworks Server, then restore the ZENworks database. Ensure that you have backed up the ZENworks Server and the database (at least once). You can also back up the ZENworks database on a regular basis. However, you can back up the server and the database in any order.

For more information about backing up and restoring the ZENworks Server, see Backing Up and Restoring the ZENworks Server and Certificate Authority in the ZENworks Disaster Recovery Reference.
