brconnect - job failure in db13

I am running db14, and scheduling a job using the "check databse" option button

This is working on other systems. but failing on one particular system. The joblog (sm37) contains this message:

W35198, W35281, W35308, W36207, W41007, WE_DBA, X41947

BR0252E Function stat() failed for '/oracle/BBD/sapbackup' at location BrDiskStatGet-1

BR0253E errno 2: No such file or directory

BR0277E Determination of disk volume status for /oracle/BBD/sapbackup failed

BR0806I End of BRCONNECT processing: cdwfxkyl.chk2007-09-26 14.15.25

BR0280I BRCONNECT time stamp: 2007-09-26 14.15.25

BR0804I BRCONNECT terminated with errors

External program terminated with exit code 3

BRCONNECT returned error status E

From this I infer that it is having a problem accessing /oracle/BBD/sapbackup. However when I check this directory I see that is does exist (ls -l)

drwxrwxrwx 2 oracle dba 96 Sep 26 14:37 sapbackup

Further, these permission and ownership do correspond to the other systems where this particular brconnect job is working.

Again, as always, I am appreciative any suggestions

thanks,

Jeff Henke

    Hi Jeff,

    You get the error because SAP try to put a file in '/oracle/BBD/sapbackup'

    But due to some reason, SAP can't put the file in that path.

    Please check the folder

    And execute action below using <sid>adm user

    cd /oracle/BBD/sapbackup

    touch test

    rm test

    and how you create the sapbackup folder ? its a folder or its a file system ?

    Hope this solve your problem.

    hi,

    Check the owner, group, and permissions for BR*Tools and SAPDBA as

    described in Note 113747.

    Hi Jeff,

    The problem may be caused by configuration problems with soft links.

    Due to technical reasons, BR*Tools does not accept relative soft links in the SAPDATA_HOME directory.

    Hope this is useful

    Regards

    Many thanks for all your suggestions.

    After considering the collective replies, I ran sqlplus /nolog @sapdba_role.sql <SID> in the exe folder as <sid>adm.

    I honestly thought I had done this, but I was mistaken.

    After I ran this, it got past the error I was getting, but it then complained about not finding /oracle/<SID>/sapreorg.

    I created it and ran the sql script again and the db13 brconnect job is now running.

    Again, thanks to all of you who led me to this conclusion.
