I am tryting to execute archive log backup thru BRTOOLS or by

executing the following command :

I:\usr\sap\SID\SYS\exe\run\brarchive.exe -p -save_delete -d util_file -r initSID.utl -n 10000 -k no -l E -c -u /

But in either case it terminates with the following error :


E:\oracle\SID\920\scripts>I:\usr\sap\SID\SYS\exe\run\brarchive.exe -p -save_delete -d util_file -r initSID.utl -n 10000 -k no -l E -c -u /

BR0280I BRARCHIVE time stamp: 2007-01-24 11.53.10

BR0005I BRARCHIVE terminated with errors


Specifications of the system :

EP 6.0 on WAS 640.

Oracle : 9.2.

No SAP instance.

Windows 2003 server.

I have already checked

1) The permissions of SIDADM for the directory SAPARCH etc. and it has 'full control'.

2) Permissions of SIDPADM and SAPServiceSID are similar.

3) R3trans -d gives return code 0. So does R3trans -x.

4) The initSID.utl, and initSID.ora files are fine and similar to rest of the systems.

Please advice.
