OFFLINE backup and DB13 jobs configuratins error in MSCS cluster with OFS

15 Views

Hello,

We have recently installed SAP ERP 6.0 EhP4 SR1 in MSCS cluster using Oracle Fail Safe.

The installation is successful and all the failover scenarios work fine.

I need to schedule offline backups and DB13 jobs, which is not possible in current scenario as once the database shuts down it fails over to node2.

I am following sapnote 657999 to install standalone gateway on both the nodes of the cluster and assigned the service to ORACLE<SID> group. the gw<SID> is different from the ERP<SID>.

However, the service SAP<gwSID>_<gwSN> fail to come up with the following error.

The service SAPSGA_30 cannot be started on local computer

error 1067: the process terminated unexpectedly.

The ../SapCluster/sapgw and associated directories have full permission.

Following are the contents of the profiles in ../SapCluster/sapgw

***************************

default.pfl

SAPDBHOST = ORACLEPRD

**************************

gw30.pfl

SAPSYSTEMNAME = SGA

INSTANCE_NAME = GW30

SAPSYSTEM = 30

DIR_PROFILE=C:\WINDOWS\SapCluster\sapgw

DIR_EXECUTABLE=C:\WINDOWS\SapCluster\sapgw

DIR_INSTANCE=C:\WINDOWS\SapCluster\sapgw

SAPLOCALHOST = ORACLEPRD

SAPLOCALHOSTFULL = ORACLEPRD

**************************

startgw.pfl

SAPSYSTEMNAME = SGA

INSTANCE_NAME = GW30

SAPSYSTEM = 30

DIR_EXECUTABLE = C:\WINDOWS\SapCluster\sapgw

DIR_PROFILE = C:\WINDOWS\SapCluster\sapgw

DIR_INSTANCE = C:\WINDOWS\SapCluster\sapgw

_GW=gwrd.exe

Start_Program_00 = local $(DIR_EXECUTABLE)\$(_GW) pf=$(DIR_PROFILE)\gw30.pfl

**************************

Now as the service is a part of my ORACLE<ERP SID> group, everytime I try to bring the group online, it fails due to the gw service and toggles many times in the two nodes before coming to rest on one node withfailed gw service and database in the up condition.

Any insight in this regard will be really helpful.

Thanks
