Oracle-Backup from Windows to Unix-Samba over FTP


I would like to set up backup for Oracle DB from Tcode DB13.

<b>My SAP systems are installed on Windows (64 Bit).

The backup data should be saved on the Unix-Samba share via FTP.</b>

If I execute DB-Backup the backup is successful, BUT:

The file names are very strange e.g. S3FV1~6

The second problem is that the files will be written to the wrong directory

(I have set the path to "sap/backup" and the files will be written to "sap").

My question is:

<b>Which FTP-server-parameters or settings in the init<DBSID>.sap are responsible for this issue?</b>

The second problem I have:

I have two SAP Systems installed on the same host.

If I execute redo logs archive from DB13 I get the error "no files processing", because of I already executed redo logs for the other SAP system on the same host.

How can I set up this issue?

Thank you very much

    for me it is a very bad style to start several threads in one forum for the same problem.

    Forums are invented not just for the people actually answering something but also for those having the same or a similar problem and searching for a solution.

    I will now stop working on this
