brbackup using ftp


hi All,

i'm trying to perform a brbackup using FTP with the following parameters set in

stage_copy_cmd = ftp

remote_user = orasid

remote_host = rmhost

according to the help document. If password is not set for remote_user, brbackup uses the password of the database user (in this case, orasid, which run the brbackup command. this is right?)

however, when running brbackup, i've got the following error:

Connected to rmhost Port 21.

220 Microsoft FTP Service

331 Password required for orasid.

530 User orasid cannot log in.

530 Please login with USER and PASS.

530 Please login with USER and PASS.


Both orasid has the same password on the sap server and the ftp server. It runs well when the password is specified in the profile. However, due to security concerns, I do not wish to have the password specified in the profile.

Thank you very much for any help!.
