How to find out which account is being used to launch a SAP agent backup job for Backup Exec.


Solution



Background:

A SAP backup job can be launched in different ways:
 
  • BRTOOLS
  • SAPDBA
  • SAPGUI (DB13)
  • Command line

Depending on the configuration of the different Utilities used when launching a SAP agent backup job a different "user" might be launching this job.


To find out which "user" is launching the SAP agent backup job please refer to the SAP internal backup job log.
This job log is normally found under the following directory: <...\SID\sapbackup>

The user account is specified at the beginning of the line system_info within the Parameters section at the beginning of the SAP job log.

In this example - see Figure 1, the account which launches the SAP agent backup job is called "prdadm".
