Executables

The programs that BR*Tools call must be accessible from everywhere. Therefore, the paths of the following executables must be set in the PATH environment variable.

SAP Programs

BRBACKUP.EXE, BRARCHIVE.EXE, BRRESTORE.EXE, BRRECOVER.EXE, BRCONNECT.EXE, BRSPACE.EXE, BRTOOLS.EXE

Interface Program for External Backup Utility

BACKINT.EXE

Operating System Programs

CPIO.EXE (MKS Tools), DD.EXE (MKS-Tools), MT.EXE (MKS Tools), MKSZIP.EXE (MKS Tools, compression), UNCOMPRESS.EXE (MKS Tools, decompression)

So far, MKSZIP.EXE and UNCOMPRESS.EXE are only used by BRBACKUP, BRARCHIVE and BRRESTORE.

The mkzip command is required if you want BRBACKUP or BRARCHIVE to save files with software compression (option -k yes).

This program is not used anymore to estimate the compression rate of tape devices with hardware compression (option -k only). Instead, BRTOOLS is called, which uses the SAP compression library.

Oracle Programs

SQLPLUS, EXP, IMP, RMAN,DBV
