Backup error DBM-Api error ( -4'Reading header from pipe:(0:NO ERROR(0))')

Hello.

I have ContentServer on SLES 11 and MaxDB 7.6.06.

When I don`t create backup:

dbmcli -d SDB -u superdba,123456 -uUTL u2013c backup_start completeT

dbmsrv: /SAP_DB/76_SP_REL/linuxx86_64/genopt/sys/wrk/incl/SAPDB/ToolsCommon/Tools_DynamicUTF8String.hpp:871: Tools_UTF8ConstIterator Tools_DynamicUTF8String::GetIteratorAtBasis(unsigned int) const: Assertion `(ToPtr(iter) == ToPtr(End())) || (ToPtr(iter) < ToPtr(End()) && ElementType::IsValid(iter))' failed.

DBM-Api error ( -4'Reading header from pipe:(0:NO ERROR(0))')

But when I try create this backup from SAP MaxDB Database Studio - all ok.

Regards.

    And "completeT" is defined as a backup to pipe? Or to a file?

    Hello,

    1. "But when I try create this backup from SAP MaxDB Database Studio - all ok".

    Did you connect to the database as superdba user?

    What is the dbm user of the database?

    Did you use the completeT medium to create the database backup?

    2. "dbmcli -d SDB -u superdba,123456 -uUTL u2013c backup_start completeT"

    Run:

    dbmcli -d SDB -n localhost -u superdba,123456

    <enter>

    dbmcli on SDB>db_connect

    <enter>

    dbmcli on SDB>backup_start completeT

    <enter>

    ..

    dbmcli on SDB>exit

    update with results.
