Informatica Backup Script

Hi,

Its been a while since I posted, today a wrote a quick script that will take a backup of Informatica .rep file and store it in a specified location. The script works in any Unix/Linux based system if you create a cron job for how often you want to take the backup the script will do the rest.

The script needs some parameters to work effectively if you add you settings then the rest of the script should work without an issue.
