Error while taking offline backup

Dear All,

We tried to take an offline backup of our DEV server today by following the below steps.

1) I initialized the tape by command <b>“ brbackup –i force –v DEV_OFF “</b>.

This was initialized successfully

2) Then in Development i executed DB13. I choose offline backup option (second option) immediately. I entered the generic tape name as “DEV_OFF”. Then I started the backup

3) When I tried to see the job log in that its showing job completed but with errors.


<b><i>Job started

Step 001 started (program RSDBAJOB, variant &0000000000049, user ID BASIS)

Execute logical command BRBACKUP On host athomedev

Parameters:-u / -jid ALLOF20070914095346 -c force -t offline_force -m all -p -v DEV_OFF

Job finished



waiting for a reply,

reward points for sure.

Thanks in advance

    Hi Hari,

    It seem's there is some issue in selecting the backup start time, try to startbackup job immediately.

    This will solve the problem.

      Hello Sir,

      I have scheduled the earlier backup also as " immediate " and that was the same error message that i posted last time..

      Now can you put more focus on the same so that i can get it done, its delaying a lof work me, we actaully have a remote client copy to be executed after this successful back.

      So kindly please help on this asap.

      Thanks a million in advance
