Backup the ASA database with included backup utility.


Check the name of the ODBC source, this is the name of the ASA db on the server.
Click Start -> Programs -> Administrative Tools -> Data Sources (ODBC) -> Select System DSN -> The ASA db should be listed here and the default name is IntellisyncSuite.

Go to the dobackup batch file (C:\Program Files\Intellisync Mobile Suite\DB\dobackup.exe), open this in wordpad and change the PylonAnywhere instances to the name of the ASA db (default: IntellisyncSuite) and then save.

This should allow you to successfully run and backup the db by running the dobackup batch file. Once the backup has run it will create a backup and log directory.
