The adapter program (if configured in this way) can backup or restore a maximum of four pipes at the same time. The temporary files created in doing this can reach a size of a Gigabyte, as long as the end of the pipe is not reached.

FILES PER BACKINT CALL:

2

As soon as two of the four temporary files have been completely created, they are saved by calling the Backint for Oracle program.

BACKINT:

C:\Program Files\BackupTool\BIN\backint.exe"

The absolute path of the Backint for Oracle program is: "C:\Program Files\BackupTool\BIN\backint.exe"

If the path contains a space then close it with double quotation marks.

PARAMETERFILE OF BACKINT:

C:\BackupTool\CONF\backint
oraconfig.utl

The absolute path of the configuration file of the Backint for Oracle program is: C:\Backuptool\CONF\backintoraconfig.utl.

HISTORY FILE:

C:\SAPDB\BackintHistory

The adapter program stores the backup history at the end of each backup under the path C:\SAPDB\BackintHistory and saves the history by calling the Backint for Oracle program again.

INPUTFILE FOR BACKINT:

C:\TEMP\backint4Oracle.in

Standard input for Backint for Oracle: C:\TEMP\backint4Oracle.in

OUTPUTFILE FOR BACKINT:

C:\TEMP\backint4Oracle.out

Standard output for Backint for Oracle: C:\TEMP\backint4Oracle.out

ERRORFILE FOR BACKINT:

C:\TEMP\backint4Oracle.err

Standard error output for Backint for Oracle: C:\TEMP\backint4Oracle.err

MAXIMAL DELAY OF BACKINT CALL:

30

If the temporary files are created at different speeds and one temporary file is already complete, the adapter program waits a maximum of 30 seconds for another of the temporary files to be completely created. If none of the other files is created within 30 seconds, the temporary file that already exists is backed up using Backint for Oracle.
