Application Error on brbackup and brarchive

Hi,

Our backup failes with no error message in the log. The backup status stays at "starting". The same status also shows in archive log.

Error below are reported in the server application event logs:

Faulting application brbackup.exe, version 6400.256.15.35965, faulting module orannts9.dll, version 9.2.0.2, fault address 0x0000000000004fb0.

I already triend replacing orannts9.dll from other servers with the same os and db version but the problem still exist.

I have also tried applying the latest brtools but the problem is still there.

We are in ECC5, Win Server 2003 Itanium, and Oracle 9.2.0.5.

thanks,

kbas

    Your archive files maybe in backup mode. Look for a file .lock.bra in /oracle/SID/oraarch. In case you find it delete it. Also check if your tablespaces are already in backup mode. In case, yes then through SQL command "Alter tablespace <tablespace name> end backup, make them come out of it. Try taking the backup again. Maybe this works.

    Also the parameter backup_root_dir should point to the directory where you want the backup to be stored. It is currently poiniting to T:/oracle/DEV/sapbackup. This is the default setting. Change it to the directory where you have to store the backup files.

      Where exactly is this T:/oracle/sapbackup directory on which you are trying to store the backup. Is it on network. Is the DB server able to reach the said directory, in the sense, it should be mapped on DB server. I still suggest try changing the backup_root_dir path.

    Dear K Bas

    Just a thought. As you mentioned that other servers are also storing tehir backups on the same directory, can you please check if the said location has enough space to store new backups. Maybe the error might be caused because of low disk space.

    Lokesh.
