SAP HANA backint problem after upgrade to HANA 2.0

Hello gurus,

I recently upgrade one of ours SAP HANA database to HANA 2.0 SPS01 (from HANA 1.0 SPS12). During this upgrade the database has been converted from single tenant to multi tenant db.

After this upgrade backint backups didn’t work. I am getting this error:

* 447: backup could not be completed: [110091] Invalid path selection for data backup using backint: /usr/sap/HD1/SYS/global/hdb/backint/ must start with /usr/sap/HD1/SYS/global/hdb/backint/DB_HD1 SQLSTATE: HY000

The directory DB_HD1 is in the /usr/sap/HD1/SYS/global/hdb/backint path:

-bash-4.2$ cd /usr/sap/HD1/SYS/global/hdb/backint

-bash-4.2$ ls -l

total 0

drwxrwx--x 2 hd1admsapsys6 Apr 26 16:14 DB_HD1

lrwxrwxrwx 1 dzcjsp2 sapsys 35 Apr 26 16:26 hdbbackint -> /opt/tivoli/tsm/tdp_hana/hdbbackint

drwxrwx--x 2 hd1admsapsys6 Apr 21 12:58 SYSTEMDB

In SAP HANA docu I find that default backint destination is /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/backint.

Have you got any idea why I am not able to start backup using backint?

Thank you so much.

    As mentioned in HANA Admin Guide of 2.0 SPS01, for third-party backup tools (Backint for SAP HANA), the following directories are used for both data backups and log backups:



    Please check if it is correctly configured in your system, and also refer to the third-party backup tool's document for more information regarding to HANA MDC environment.
