About backint command line interface for SAP HANA
To execute backup and recovery backint needs to be provided with additional information. This information is given through the command line options.
Table: backint command options lists the backint command options
Table: backint command options
The user ID defines a common name space for file names in a multi-host SAP HANA database. The user ID is bound to a database instance and used by all the servers in this instance.
The requested function
backup, restore, inquire, delete
Name of the vendor supplied parameter file
The name of the input file containing the parameters for the corresponding function (-f). If this option is not set, the input is read from stdin.
The backint uses this name of the output file to write return values and messages. If this option is not set, the output is written to stdout.
The database backup ID which can be used to determine which calls to backint belong to a specific multi-file backup. This option is only usable if the function is backup.
The number of objects that belong to the database backup ID specified using the - s option. This option is only usable if the function is backup and in combination with option - s.
The backup level indicates the type of backup. This option is only usable if the function is backup.
This option requests the version to be printed to stdout. One line describing backint API version and backint implementation version. It should be the same string as #SOFTWAREID in the output file. For example: backint 1.04 "ACME Corp backint 0815.2012.06.
Detailed version information, same as text as for option ' - v' plus additional lines with detailed version and or licensing information.
The SAP HANA database does not rely on any action that is related to the parameters that are passed with options - s, -c, or - l. These are for informational purposes only.
The SAP HANA database never calls the options - v and - V. They are for diagnosis only. The implementation of - V is optional.
