Setting backup options
This step of the wizard allows you to set the general backup options.
Note: This step is only available if Full backup is specified as the backup type.
Ignore check sum
If this option is selected, wrong check sums of the database header pages where the database connection properties are stored, are ignored in the backup operation.
Ignore transaction in Limbo
If this option is selected, transactions in limbo, i.e. transactions that cannot be defined as executed or aborted, are ignored in the backup operation.
Backup metadata only
If this option is selected, only database metadata are saved in the backup file.
If this option is selected, garbage collection is executed in the backup operation.
Old metadata description
If this option is selected, old metadata descriptions are included into the reserve database.
Convert to tables
This option converts the database data to tables in the backup operation.
Select the data format for the reserve database: Transportable (the database can be then moved from one platform to another) or Non-Transportable.
This group appears if the Shutdown database before service start option has been enabled at the first step. The following shutdown modes are available:
Deny new transactions
Deny new attachments
For details see Setting shutdown options.
