Step 1: Back up the source database
You can use either PROBKUP or the OS copy utility to back up the database. However, keep in mind that if the source database has after-image files and you use the OS copy utility, after-imaging will also be enabled on the target database.
You are not required to set up after-imaging on the target database. If after-imaging is enabled, however, the management of the after-image files on the target must be handled separately from the source, requiring the same degree of effort for both databases.
For PROBKUP, use the following command:
probkup source-db-name{file-name |device-name}
