I have started a db backup of a sap system directly onto a tape.
I am using DD since size of each datafile is more than 2 GB.
In a total of 112 data files, 109 got copied but suddenly, the following error came and brbackup got terminated.
This has happened for the second time and that too after using a separate set of tapes.
Can you please provide me your views on it. I am unable to understand why should the error contain "CPIO" if i am using DD.
The parameter settings have been made correctly in the init<SID>.sap file.
