VerifyDB online on Linux

Hi!

I would like to execute a verify database job from DB13 for my SAP system on Linux.

By doing so the following error comes up:

SAP system is running or SAP user is connected to database <sid> - database cannot be shut down.

Please shut down SAP system first or use the 'offline_force' option.

Question:

1) Can this job (verifyDB) be executed with running SAP system and Database?

2) If not, what is the right sql commando for the execution of this job?

brbackup -w only_dbv -u / -offline_force

Thank you very much!

    > 1) Can this job (verifyDB) be executed with running SAP system and Database?

    No, the database (and hence the SAP system) has to be shut down.

    > 2) If not, what is the right sql commando for the execution of this job?

    > brbackup -w only_dbv -u / -offline_force

    This will shut down the database, execute the verify and start the database again. The SAP system can stay up but users won't be able to work.

      Not sure if I correctly understood your last question.

      In DB13 choose verifyDB, and then all the defaults.

      From your original question I gather that you already did so. The same now!
