I am trying to figure the best way to backup our embedded Sybase Database. I have read the documentation and understand how to do it with the zman commands. I am wanting to do this automatically and have further read the instructions of setting up the schedule with the templates on the server. My question is that when you do the actual backup, the zenworks services have to stop, backup the database and log files, then restart. With the template/schedule, it does not look like that happens. The documentation indicates that you can put a number after the novell-zenworks-configure -c Start command but I keep getting errors. Is my syntax incorrect? Is there another way to stop the services and then restart them with a cron job?
We just finished dealing with a corrupt database so I am a little gun shy about doing anything to the database that will corrupt it.
