Use this parameter to specify the user for a remote host, if you want to make a backup to a remote tape or disk.

Syntax: remote_user = <user>

Default: none

If you use the ftp network to transfer data (see stage_copy_cmd) you can also specify the password which BRBACKUP uses to log on to the remote host.

remote_user = "<user> <password>"

If you do not specify a password, BRBACKUP uses the password of the database user. If this is the case, the two user passwords must be the same.

The parameters remote_userand remote_hostreplace the parameter read_fifo_cmd which will no longer be used as of Release 4.5A.
