Permissions denied while taking backup of global directory in filesystem using brtools

Hi Sir,

After all the above works i have noticed that the DMS files are storing in the global directory location ( usr/sap/PRD/SYS/global).

Is there any possibility to take the backup of the global directory to safe the documents periodically from any external damage/crash.

If it can be done please suggest me some suggestions how to do it.

Thanks in advance regards,

    BRTools is used for backing up the Oracle database.

    For DMS are you using the SAP Content Server solution ?

    If you have DMS files in the /usr/sap/PRD/SYS/global location (Which I believe is not the correct place to store files) and if you Content Server then you should take backup of the MaxDB.

      Hi sir,

      I have tried all the possiblities in the above mentioned links except moving the files to tape without compression. (Everytime it is denying the permissions to take backup of sap_dir)

      Without that i have tried refresh in my sap system the files in Easy DMS is completely lost.

      I have a thought that the transport requests are automatically available in trans directory and importing automatically after refreshing the sap system. In the same way is it possible to change the DMS location to trans directory where all the files are safe and return after refreshing the system without.

      I want to know is it possible, If possible can i know how it can be done. Please help me to resolve it if possible in a step-by-step procedure.

      Thanks in advance, Regards,
