Failing backups on the distributed install, gateway problem
I've checked multiple threads, however cannot understand concept, I assume answer may be very silly but I can't see where the resolution is. So please feel free to suggest.
We having distributed install CI and DB on Different hosts it is RHEL 6.5 on vmware , and of course DB backups are failing, even though we were having getaway already installed in the system.
When I schedule a backup from DB13 it fails with following error:
Step 001 started (program RSDBAJOB, variant &0000000000065, user ID DDIC)
Execute logical command BRBACKUP On host dbXXX
Parameters:-jid ALLOG20140909145451 -u / -c force -t online -m all -p initPRD.sap -a -c force -p initPRD.sap -s
SXPG_STEP_XPG_START: is_local_host: rc = 403
SXPG_STEP_XPG_START: host = dbXXX
SXPG_STEP_XPG_START: is_local_r3_host: rc = 802
SXPG_STEP_XPG_START: RFC_TCPIP_CONNECTION_OPEN: rc = 1003
SXPG_STEP_COMMAND_START: SXPG_STEP_XPG_START returned: 1.003
<timestamp> = 20140909145513
COMMANDNAME = BRBACKUP
So I did install gateway on the DB as sid = GTW instance number 00, but when I specify these details in the
SAPXPG_DBDEST_DB519 it is failing as well, should gateway somehow be configured.
Also I know there are two methods of installing gateway:
1st is via sapinst and assign it a new SID,
2nd is to create profiles manually (SID_G01_dbXXX, START_G01_dbXXX) and binaries on the os level:
two files under data directory
reginfo & secinfo
P TP=* HOST=*
P TP=* USER=* USER-HOST=* HOST=*
We have two different sap gateways currently installed but RFC is still failing (one by first method another is by second).
Please point me where I'm missing or what should I put under RFC.
Much appreciated, Pavlo
