SAP R/3 Online Backup Fails with Error:
BR0233E Backup utility has reported an error while saving file /oracle/SID/sapdata1/sr3_2/sr3.data2
DP debugs show:
[ 99] [OB2_StartItemBackup] itemName: /oracle/SID/sapdata1/sr3_3/sr3.data3
[ -2] 2014-06-09 05:44:29 ("/lib/cmn/posixio.c $Rev: 38616 $ $Date:: 2013-08-16 20:29:33":128) A.07.00 b105
[ -2] OB2_OpenFile: open() failed, errcode=22 [file=/oracle/SID/sapdata1/sr3_3/sr3.data3]
[ 35] [main] Calling EndItemBackup
Above implies: Somehow the file sr3.data3 is getting failed to open.
“head” is a simple Unix command which would read first few lines of the file, and this would help us understand if we are able to read the first few lines of the file outside DP at OS level
head -15 /oracle/SID/sapdata1/sr3_2/sr3.data2 returned following:
/oracle/SID/sapdata1/sr3_2/sr3.data2: A system call received a parameter that is not valid
Cause: Issue with IBM AIX OS as documented at:
