Hello SAP experts,

I am facing a below issue while running a DB backup using BRBACKUP tool.

======================================================================================

BR051I BRBACKUP 6.20 (136)

BR055I Start of database backup: bedrfxej.anf 2010-07-15 17.36.05

BR280I Time stamp 2010-07-15 17.36.06

BR301E SQL error -1017 at location BrDbConnect-2

ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied

BR310E Connect to database instance <SID> failed

BR280I Time stamp 2010-07-15 17.36.06

BR301E SQL error -1017 at location BrDbConnect-2

ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied

BR310E Connect to database instance<SID> failed

BR056I End of database backup: bedrfxej.anf 2010-07-15 17.36.06

BR280I Time stamp 2010-07-15 17.36.06

BR054I BRBACKUP terminated with errors

======================================================================================

I have checked that when i change the password of the oracle user SYSTEM to differnet one it fails and when it is manger( default oracle password) it works.

so can you please let me know how to go ahead as i need to change the password of the oracle users as per the Business Password standards.

Thanks and regards,

Ramkrishna

R3trans is working fine with the new password and SAP is also running fine.

Hi Ramakrishna,

Could you please check the permissions of the below files in kernel i.e. /sapmnt/SID/exe directory.

-rwxrwxr-x 1 ora<SID> sapsys Date 12:01 brarchive

-rwsrwxr-x 1 ora<SID> sapsys Date 12:06 brbackup

-rwsrwxr-x 1 ora<SID> sapsys Date 12:06 brconnect

-rwxrwxr-x 1 <SID>adm sapsys Date 12:07 brrecover

-rwxrwxr-x 1 <SID>adm sapsys Date 12:07 brrestore

-rwxrwxr-x 1 ora<SID> sapsys Date 12:06 brspace

-rwsrwxr-x 1 ora<SID> sapsys Date 12:06 brtools

Also check whether your <SID>adm and ora<SID> are part of dba group. You can find this in /etc/security/group.

Please try running the same with BRtools and check if you are able to do the same. I guess this should fix the issue.

Thanks,

Hello nike,

I have checked the permissions and they are correct.

As per SAP recommendations.

Ths issue here is when i user user system/manager the backup works fine.

But if i change the password of SYSTEM user the brbackup command fails giving the error mentioned above.

Thanks and Regards,

Ramkrishna
