Backing up archive logs without extension in SnapCreator

[ Edited ]

Hi,

while trying to setup archive log backup of MaxDB database in SnapCreator 3.6 I can't pass through the following constraints:

  • SC requires archive log files to have an filename extension (like eg. "log" in full filename "LOG001.log") to take them in consideration for processing
  • MaxDB creates archive log files without any extension (like eg. "LOG001")

Leaving "ARCHIVE_LOG_EXT" parameter empty neither using "*" in place of extension doesn't help as SC seems to only accept dot+extension form of filename.

Is there any standard method how to make SC work with archive log files not having an filename extension? Maybe even experience forcing MaxDB to put extension in archive log names?

Greetings,

Hi Kukacz,

Just do this

ARCHIVE_LOG_EXT=*

A wild card should work and find all files, just make sure only archive logs are in the directory as SC wont distinguish between them or any other files.

Keith

I'd bet I had tried this already, apparently not hower. It works. Thanks, Keith ! :-)
