Dear All,

I have a failed backup with status 6. When I check the logs from bphdb:

It said backint: not found

Then I check it: there's no backint file in /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/exe/run, but there's one in /usr/openv/netbackup/bin

Please help how to solve this problem or recover the backint file here? Can I just copy backint file from other system? Thank you

Create a dynamic link between  /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/exe/run/backint and /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/backint

The tech note below provide a instruction how to create a link

...or backint does exist but isnt in your path. I've seen this too, typically post SAP upgrade.

Please advice how to specify the backint usage?

The correct parameters are listed in the error output:
