If the problem is not solved yet, check if backint is properly linked to TSM. Can you tell us the result of the following list command

ls -ltr /usr/sap/KAP/SYS/exe/run/backint

Also confirm if it is linked properly in $ORACLE_HOME/lib/libobk*

Is this a new configuration?

Check the resources, utility availability if it is not a new configuration.

Error is showing - Backup utility call failed

Hi Darshan,

Check below log for more information


Also, check the initKAP.utl file for improper configuration.

Execute backfm -p and see if you can connect to the backup server.

Was the log you mentioned complete? or any other error messages which have not been posted?

Thanks for reply

I had mention the complete log of the mention issue as per you suggest i had check the tueapodb.utl

i found no issue in configuration.

Thier is no issue of connecting with backup server because backup is running almost more than 50%

after that it failed.

Please suggest me the another way to check the issue.

Hi Darshan,

Well, then it seems like the issue is on the tsm side or the network throughput.

How many sessions (MAX_SESSIONS and MAX_BACK_SESSIONS) did you configure for the online backup in the utl file?

What is the SESSIONS value?

Also, look for any disk I/O errors in the OS and TSM logs.

Try updating the brtools.

Involve tsm team to investigate the behavior of the backup. They will be able to identify if there is a bottleneck at TSM side.
