In DB12 it shows the below logs

BR0072I Please delete file /oracle/SID/sapbackup/.lock.brb if BRBACKUP was killed

BR0073E Setting of BRBACKUP lock failed

BR0056I End of database backup: beplzytx.ant 2014-12-24 02.00.21

BR0280I BRBACKUP time stamp: 2014-12-24 02.00.22

BR0054I BRBACKUP terminated with errors

I am trying to cancel the brbackup using the below commands

ps -ef | grep brbackup  then it shows some PID based on that i am trying to kill  with

kill -9 pid but it is not killed and terminal gone

and also i faced BR0211E Volume remount required - unattended mode not possible

    Hi,

    If not then try to restart the complete system once and share the updated logs as well for the process which you're performing.

    Volume remount required - unattended mode not possible

    Additionally check with your DB size and capacity of your tape size,(Issue happens sometimes if DB size is more than the capacity of tape).

    Hi,

    Remov the backup lock file Please delete file /oracle/SID/sapbackup/.lock.brb as mentioned in logs and the next run should be successful.

    The lock file should have vanished automatically when backup completes but in some cases it wont happen like backup termination due to some errors

    Regards

    Hi,

    As above said please remove lock file .lock.brb from the directory location /oracle/SID/sapbackup/ and re run the procedure.

    This will resolve your issue.

    BR0071E BRBACKUP currently running or was killed


    Maybe your database is in backup mode


    sqlplus / assysdba


    SELECT * FROM V$BACKUP;


    if u can see records with status = ACTIVE then:


    ALTER DATABASE END BACKUP;


    also delete the .lock file in /oracle/SID/sapbackup if the file exist, (Remember, list that with ls -lrta because is a hidden file)



    hope this help


    Regards.😊
