eDirectory Backup

Hello All

I look after another of NETWARE6.5 SP8 servers, the backup software we use is not capable of backing up eDirectory so I am trying to take a backup using eMBox but when i try to run the command there is no error message or any message to say it has worked either

The steps I am doing are as follows

From the Console: edirutil -i
login to the server: login -s server-ip -p 8009 -u admin.mycontext -w mypassword
then the backup command: backup -b -f sys:\backup.bak -l sys:\backup.log -t -w
Once command has been run then logout and then exit

I can not see the files either on the server I am running the console on or the server I am logged onto via edirutuil -i

Can some one please help

Re: eDirectory Backup

Another option would be dsbk, but that requires a linux server:

There is however an older version for NW:

It is not installed on the server?
