Failing backups on the distributed install, gateway problem

Hi Experts,

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                                             

SXPG_COMMAND_EXECUTE(LONG)                                                                               

<timestamp> = 20140909145513                                                                             

COMMANDNAME = BRBACKUP                                                                                   

ADDITIONAL_PARAMETERS =             

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:

/usr/sap/SID/G01

/usr/sap/SID/G01/data

/usr/sap/SID/G01/log

/usr/sap/SID/G01/sec 

/usr/sap/SID/G01/work

two files under data directory

reginfo & secinfo

cat reginfo

#VERSION=2

P TP=* HOST=*


Cat secinfo

#VERSION=2

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
