BR0074W BRCONNECT call failed

Hi All,

As per I have a similar problem.

I have just patched Solman 7.1 from SPS14 to SPS15 and now am getting this error after a successful incremental backup using RMAN and HP Data Protector.

BR0522I 49 of 49 files / save sets processed by RMAN
BR0280I BRBACKUP time stamp: 2017-07-19 19.06.43
BR0508I Incremental database backup (level 1) using RMAN successful
BR0278I Command output of 'brconnect':
'brtools' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
BR0074W BRCONNECT call failed

I can call brtools with option -version from SM69 with no issues. All the binaries are located in the same directory so if the backups can run one of them they should be able to run them all.

Unlike this post backup_dev_type is set to RMAN_UTIL.

Nothing has changed on this server other than the SPS patching, well also the kernel was patched from 721 patch 600 to 721 patch 900.

Windows Server 2003 R2, Oracle 11g, Solman 7.1 SPS15, BRtools 7.20 Patch 42.

Anyone got any ideas?

    Hi Craig,

    This should be caused by incorrect environment variables, please attach the complete brtoos log and os set result.

    Best regards,

    • Hi Craig,

      PATH looks correct, but try to put E:\usr\sap\<SID>\SYS\exe\uc\NTAMD64 in first place of PATH.

      If the problem does still occur, can you please increase brtools trace level to 15 and reattach the detailed trace?
      See SAP note 29321 to increase brtools trace level.

      best regards,

    Hi Craig,

    I guess this may be because of the br tools file permission.
