System refresh with Commvault


we want to perform a SAP refresh, e.g. restore instance ABC from host1 to instance DEF on host2.

The backup was taken using Commvault software and the backint interface.

Looking at the Commvault documentation there seems to be a procedure in place for performing the above with Oracle only (not using backint).

However, the documentation does not mention anything for SAP (backint). All what's covered is the restore to the same SID on different hosts.

For other backup tools (eg. Networker, Dataprotector) I only had to execute the following command to restore:

brrestore -d util_file -b behhulnv.anf -m all -c force -u /

However, with Commvault this commands throws the following error:


Success in getting Job id=837 Token=<837:2:1>

Success in init with JM

getJobListByInstanceId=34 retCode=1

Cannot get the list of Jobs

Cannot figure out the job type legacy or Snap?


Any ideas?

Thanks and regards,

    For restoration could you please look into the link below.

    Note: During backup / restore backint will act as a trigger point to brbackup/brrestore utilities.

    Hope this helps.

      Hi Thomas,

      Nearly there now.....

      Ran form the command line and it ran for a little while so I thought I had cracked it...

      Then an error saying

      iPath=[/oracle/PIQ/sapdata1/sr3_7] qPath=[/oracle/PIQ/sapdata1/sr3_7] pPath=[/oracle/PIQ/sapdata1/sr3_7]

      Out of place restores to different destination directories is not supported.

      This looks like a new datafile that was added onto production PIP a while back.

      So I created the directory myself but it sill fell over

      did you have any problems like this?

      Again I'm really sorry to bother you I hope you don't mind me asking
