Backup to a remote tape device (ECC 6.0 / Windows 2003 Server / Oracle 10g)


Dear SAP Experts,

I need to do online backup for Development server via DB13 into a tape device.

The problem is, the tape device is attached to the Production Server.

I have changed my init<SSD>.sap configuration like this :

backup_dev_type = pipe

remote_host = "remote hostname"

remote_user = "remote user"

With the above configuration, it works with Unix, but not for Windows.

It looks like that option "backup_dev_type = pipe" is not applicable for Windows.

Any ideas what should I do to backup into a remote tape device in Windows?

Thank you very much for your help
