Background documentationbackup_ext_ids_getfromtool Locate this document in the navigation structure


When you execute this command, the system accesses the information stored in the backup tool and writes it to a file. This information includes the external backup ID, the availability status, the backup type and the creation time of the backups of a database instance. In contrast to backup_ext_ids_get, here you enter the name of the backup tool.

To subsequently display the file content, use the DBM command for displaying external backup IDs (see: backup_ext_ids_list).
