Use this parameter to choose which transfer program will copy the data across the network to another host. This parameter is used when you make backups to remote disks.

Syntax: stage_copy_cmd = rcp|ftp|scp

Default: rcp

rcp means that the operating system remote copy command is used

ftp means that SAP implementation of file transfer protocol (sapftp) is used

scp means that the operating system secure copy command is used

An incremental backup to a remote disk is always made with ftp. In this case, this parameter is ignored.
