nBackup Support 

Tracker reference: CORE-1758. 

The nBackup utility performs two logical groups of operations: locking or 
unlocking a database and backing it up or restoring it. While there is no 
rationale for providing a service action for the lock/unlock operations—they 
can be requested remotely by way of an SQL language request for ALTER 
DATABASE—a Services API interface to the backup/restore operations is easily 

Backup and restore must be run on the host station and the only way to access 
them was by running nBackup. 

The two new service actions now enabling nBackup backup and restore to be 
requested through the Services API are: 

isc_action_svc_nbak - incremental nbackup

isc_action_svc_nrest - incremental database restore

The parameter items are:

isc_spb_nbk_level - backup level (integer)

isc_spb_nbk_file - backup file name (string)

isc_spb_nbk_no_triggers - option to suppress database triggers
