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 -a -c force -p -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

cat reginfo



Cat secinfo



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
