Re: SAP Backup error

Is there sufficient disk space on '/var/opt/omni/tmp on the client? What does the oracle8.log and debug.log say at backup time?

Sebastian

Re: SAP Backup error

Check df and mount to see if /var is located on a separate device and how much data is free on that device.

Re: SAP Backup error

does it mean HP Openview can't open that file because of the diskspace utilization is exceeding threshold?

This message can mean different things. Most likely the file is not transported into the right location for any reason. Could be disk space or an issue with the source file. Also a software or configuration issue is possible from what you've provided so far.

If there is sufficient space, provifde debug.log, oracle8.log, full session log and RMAN script used for backup. Why do you use the Oracle integration over the SAP R/3 integration using brbackup?

 

This is not an ASM setup? If yes, this could be the issue.

Re: SAP Backup error

Hi,

 

Much Thanks for the quick reply.

 

BTW, I don't think that my customer using ASM setup. Is it wrong using the Oracle Integration SAP/R3 for the backup?

 

The confusing issue is the Database backup is fine. It is just the Archieve logs that couldn't be backup.

 

I will try to get to you all those log.

Re: SAP Backup error

Both RMAN and brtools are possible while offering different advantages/disadvantages.

Could you please provide the output of ls -la /var/opt/omni/tmp from the client in question. If there are no files located in this folder, run watch -d 'ls -la /var/opt/omni/tmp' during archive log backup time to see if files are created and/or deleted. Have an eye on user names and permissions. Maybe there is something wrong with the user configured.

Sebastian
