DB13 - BR1804E SAPPROF dir not supported if spfile is not used



Trying to run DB13 checks, stats, etc, but we are running into the following error:

BR0801I BRCONNECT 7.20 (24)

BR0805I Start of BRCONNECT processing: cenvpbdb.chk 2014-05-13 13.49.01

BR0484I BRCONNECT log file: /oracle/<SID>/sapcheck/cenvpggb.chk

BR1804E Separate SAPPROF directory not supported if spfile is not used

BR0303E Determination of Oracle version failed

BR0280I BRCONNECT time stamp: 2014-05-13 13.49.01

BR0301E SQL error -12162 at location db_connect-2, SQL statement: 'CONNECT /'

ORA-12162: TNS:net service name is incorrectly specified

BR0310E Connect to database instance failed

BRTOOLS version 7.20 patch 24. We are ASM. So we are using our spfile on ASM, which is why it's strange it's complaining about the SAPPROF.

We are able to run brtool db checks directly on the database. Checked brtools permissions, oracle permissions (OPS$ORACLE) are ok, etc and everything looks fine. the SAPPROF directory contains the brtools profile and empty oracle profile. Reviewed SAP note 1598594 and we have this working on other systems, so we're not sure what the issue is. Other than this, the system is up and running fine. Any ideas?
