We are using SAP DB (Adabas D) and SAP ver 4.0B. Is there a way of starting and stopping the Database so we can...
perform offline backups? Also are there any SAP backup strategies that you are aware of?
You can use the "xcontrol" program to do this. The syntax to start Adabas is:
xcontrol -d dbname -u control,control -b WARM
The syntax to stop Adabas is:
xcontrol -d dbname -u control,control -b OFFLINE
Replace "dbname" with the appropriate instance name.
