Please review the information at MAXDB library in section "autolog_on"

< -> Tools -> Database Manager CLI

-> Overview of All DBM Commands -> autolog_on >

To find the Syntax of the dbm command 'autolog_on' run:

dbmcli help autolog_on


dbmcli explain autolog_on

Syntax of the dbm command:

autolog_on [<medium_name>]

Or in later releases

autolog_on [<medium_name>] [INTERVAL <interval>]

[<medium_name>]: Name of the backup template

If you are NOT specify the <medium_name> the default backup template is used, the default backup template is the last one used for automatic log backup of the database instance

PS: As SAP customer you could find the helpful information in the SAP note::
