How to check connection for backint?

Created: 16 Jan 2013 • Updated: 16 Jan 2013 | 3 comments

Hello everybody,

I have a landscape with SAP server separated by media server. I purchased SAP agent, installed it and copied to folder where SAP is installed. If I launch the backup job from DB13, it fails when executing the BACKINT program.
The command line is this:

backint.exe -u SID -f backup -i E:\oracle\SID\sapbackup\.bekiiuqx.lst -t file -p E:\usr\sap\SID\SYS\exe\nuc\NTAMD64\biparam.ini -c

My content of biparam.ini is:


Job Name=Backup SAP side -
Backup Catalog=off
Job Template=DEFAULT

and this is located in the path specified before, in with the parameter "util_par_file"

The return error code is 2, and it says me: "Unable to connect to Backup Exec server: \\SERVER-IP"

I checked this document, and all that point are checked. So, how can I check the connection for backint and find the error?

Thank you

As I wrote before, I already did all those steps, and that helped to solve a lot of issues, but I'm not able to connect. Can you give me an alternative way to check the configuration or to test that?

Thank you!

Anyone can help me?

The backup from Backup Exec goes fine. When I start it from DB13, it fails.

I run SAP service with account local to the machine, could be that the problem?
