Hello, could you check if you can start the Backup Server manually with logon sybpcd ? Just start the batchjob RUN_PCD_BS, this is an easy way to verify if the BS executable is able to start. Also you should check if the PCD_BS.log is written and if there are errors. Hope this will help. With kind regards Stefan
PS: Is this an ASE used by a SAP application, cause the logon naming is the same like used by SWPM.
