-r|-parfile

This BRBACKUP command option defines the BACKINT or mount parameter file.

Input syntax: -r|-parfile <parameter_file>

Default value: No parameter file

If you want to carry out a BRBACKUP backup using backup devices such as jukeboxes or autoloaders, you can define the name of a parameter file with the option -r or in the initialization profile, which contains the configuration parameters for the mount or dismount command.

When using non-SAP backup programs for the backup, you might have to store the additional information required in a parameter file when specifying the option -d util_file|util_file_online. You can enter the complete names of this file in the initialization profile or using the option -r. The contents of this file depend on the external backup program used. The SAP utilities only pass on the information about the parameter file name that the external program can use to obtain the required information. To find out which parameters must appear in this file and the syntax of those parameters, contact the supplier of the external backup program.

Parameters in init<DBSID>.sap:

·        mount_par_file (for BRBACKUP backups)

·        util_par_file (for external backup programs)
