BR0233E Backup utility has reported an error while saving file

Issue: SAP oracle database Archive log backup failing using BR Tool


Error:

BR0233E Backup utility has reported an error while saving file
ERROR: incorrect format or option in .utl file (-p)
BR0231E Backup utility call failed
ERROR: Can't change to working directory Errno = 13 : Permission denied
BR0005I BRARCHIVE terminated with errors

Background/Analysis:

SAP archive backup policy started failing which is using brarchive ( SAP supplied backup utility BR Tool ) command executed via backup policy

As a first action logs & errors identified 

Secondly , brarchive command executed manually from database server which is client to backup media server as below

brarchive -u / -c -d util_file -r /oracle/PRD/102_64/dbs/initPRD-logs.utl -s

Be careful , "-s" flag is for saving archive log files to backup device & "-sd" to save & delete from source post backup to backup device

First error observed was "ERROR: Can't change to working directory:  Errno = 13 : Permission denied " on specific folder mentioned in the error

Action taken was to make such folder available with proper permission using & re-execute the manual backup command


mkdir -p /usr/openv/netbackup/logs/user_ops/sap





Previous error disappeared , but got new error "BR0233E Backup utility has reported an error while saving file"

Action taken was  ..
=> Restarted backup client processes (bpcd -standalone & bpcompatd) on db server
=> Ensured backup master to client connectivity 
=> Verified drive availability
=> Verified if any media issue

But no luck !

Finally , Backup got successfully completed after restoring below folders in logs from Backup

cd /usr/openv/netbackup/logs/
ls -lrt

Solution:

create below folders in /usr/openv/netbackup/logs/

bpbackup
user_ops
brbackup
nbliveup
bpbkar
backint
bphdb


Lesson Learned:

As above folders got deleted during cleanup operation of logs , cleanup activity should not delete folders & rm should be used ( not rm -rf ) using extension of file
