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

Thanks in advance
