I have no trouble running BRBACKUP on any of my UNIX servers. The space<DBSID>.log is in the /oracle/<DBSID>/sapreorg directory.

When I run the same backup on a Win Server, it returns:

BR0252E Function fopen() failed for 'cipt0365\spaceS40.log' at location BrInitLogTouch-1

BR0253E errno 2: No such file or directory

I looked in the F:\oracle\<DBSID>\sapreorg and it is empty.

Created a dummy space.log without any luck.

What creates and when is it created (space.log)?

I am assuming that cipt0365\spaceS40.log should be


I am also assuming that the creation of the files in sapreorg are failing because it cannot find the path....

Please check the init<SID>.SAP file from which brtools take the values.

I compared the values on my Unix server (that is working) with the values on the Win server and found no differences. We also hard coded the two values that default to sapreorg. No luck.

What parm should I be looking at for the creation of the space<DBSID>.log?
