I'm new here. Thank you for your attention in advance!
I have a simple question regarding backups. I received some informix instances to manage. I saw that some Instances have databases with nologging. Is it possible to make online backups of these instances? I need to put all databases inside an Instance in logging mode before making backups? This is prerequisite? Sorry, I'm an Oracle DBA and I got this instances to manage without any training. I read a lot of documentation before asking this question and I didn't find any information about this. Thinking in Oracle, I believe that all databases must be in logging mode to enable online backups. Is it correct?
