Subj:   Re: Any scripts to regulary backup Teradata databases
 
From:   Geoffrey Rommel

  Can you point me to a source regarding scripts to backup Teradata database through shell scripting.  


This depends on a number of factors. There are four basic configurations for archiving: (1) on the mainframe through MVS; on Windows or Linux through (2) NetBackup, (3) NetVault, or (4) Tivoli Storage Manager. You need to find out which of these is being used in your shop.

If you have a new system, it was probably configured with TARA (Tiered Archive/Recovery Architecture). This makes it easy: you set up the archive jobs in the TARA GUI and then schedule a ksh or bat file to kick off TARAlaunch ("TARAlaunch -j my_arc_job -w"). The manual explains how to do this.

Technically, it is possible to run arcmain directly in a script and send the output to a disk file, another process, or anywhere else you want, but this is an advanced technique.
