MaxDB DBMCLI Backup Commands


I am trying to schedule a Backup for our MaxDB instance. Since i do not see any options to configure backups via GUI, i am looking for command line scripts that i can schedule to run via Windows Scheduler.

I checked few posts and Wikis but nothing is clear with respect to backup scheduling via CLI.

Can anyone help/post commands that i can use for our MaxDB backup scheduling.

Any advise on resolving the backup scheduling would be great.

    I checked below command:

    C:\sapdb>G:\sapdb\SDB\db\pgm\dbmcli -d SDB -u control,password -uUTL -c backup_start Full_Backup


    -24988,ERR_SQL: SQL error

    -903,Host file I/O error

    3,Data backup failed

    113,Open medium on \\HOST\Backup_MaxDB\Backup\SDB for WRITE failed

    Servertask Info: because Error in backup task occured

    Job 1 (Backup / Restore Medium Task) [executing] WaitingT25 Result=3700

    Error in backup task occured, Error code 3700 "hostfile_error"

    1,Open file \\HOST\Backup_MaxDB\Backup\SDB failed, CreateFile(WRITE,CR

    EATE) returned 'Access is denied. ' (5)

    Checked to see that the network path exists and permissions available to CREATE/WRITE on the path.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    • Hi Naga,

      Of course you can create batch file to call the command, then let the windows scheduler to call the batch file. Please go ahead for the testing.

      Or you can find a solution manager system to let the dbacockpit of solution manager to operate the
      remote database. Then you can use dbacockpit to schedule the job like the db13 you do in your normal database. Do you know dbacockpit of an SAP system?

      Best regards,
