Data Manager Catalog Backup

It is posible to automate the backup of a Datamanager Catalog.

On ittoolbox.com, Michael Sherman replied that his script can be used as an example:

SET DATESTAMP=%DATE%

SET TIMESTAMP=%TIME%

SET YEAR=%DATESTAMP:~10,4%

SET MONTH=%DATESTAMP:~4,2%

SET DAY=%DATESTAMP:~7,2%

SET HOUR=%TIMESTAMP:~0,2%

SET MINUTE=%TIMESTAMP:~3,2%

SET FILEDATE=%YEAR%-%MONTH%-%DAY%_%HOUR\%%MINUTE%

C:\Progra~1\cognos\c8\bin\CATBACKUP.exe ODBC “DSN=[ODBC Connection to Catalog Database];UID=[User ID to log onto Database];PWD=[Password to Log onto Database]” “[Full Path Name for the Catalog Backup]%FILEDATE%.ctg”
