MAX DB CLI backup


Dear All,

I'm new to max db and we have SAP DMS server in AIX 7.1 with /sapdb/SDB/db /sapdb/CDB/db

I created a backup template using HowTo - SAP MaxDB Backup with Database Manager CLI guide and

managed to take the SDB & CDB backup to a external NAS.But the backup file is 3.5 MB .

This is same for Dev,Qty, and production.

Our production DMS aserver SDB db is around 40 GB, backup is 3.5 MB.

What's wrong with this backup...?

Please help...
