SAP backup through veritas fails

Hi

I am trying to take SAP online backup through veritas.

When I executed the sap_online_backup script I end up with the following error

BR0278I Command output of '/usr/sap/W1M/SYS/exe/run/backint -u
W1M -f backup -i /oracle/W1M/saparch/.aedxlqkf.lst -t file -c': ERROR: need to specify (-p)
/usr/sap/W1M/SYS/exe/run/backint: usage:
/usr/sap/W1M/SYS/exe/run/backint -u user_id -p param_file [ -o output_file ] [-i input_file]-f backup|restore|inquire [-t file | file_online]
>>>>> ERROR: incorrect parameter options



Below are the commands which i am using for triggering the backup.These commands are there in the scripts directory.

brbackup -c -u / -d util_file_online -t online -m all

brarchive -c -u / -d util_file -sd


 Backup team confirmed that the backup policy is activated.

Please let me know how to resolve this issue

Regards,
Anil

Suggestion:

Start from scratch and verify that the installation and configuration was done correctly.

(You never mentioned the NBU, SAP or O/S version)

NBU 7: SAP Administrator Guide for UNIX,Linux  http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/340133
NBU 6.5: SAP System Administrator's Guide for UNIX and Linux   http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/290217.htm

Start by verifying agent was installed correctly (no separate installation for NBU 7, see 6.5 manual for details).
Verify symbolic link was done correctly:
                     ( ln -s /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/backint /usr/sap/SID/SYS/exe/run/backint)

Verify your backup script - compare with sample scripts in the manual.

Verify your initSID.utl and initSID.sap configuration files - see required and suggested parameters in manual.
