SnapManager for Oracle or SAP backup completion time is taking too long

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • SnapManager for Oracle 3.4.x
  • Snapmanager for SAP 3.4.x


SnapManager for Oracle or SAP backup completion time is taking longer than expected, where SMSAP is also creating large BR*Backup Log files.

The following error may be displayed:

N archived log files do not exist in the active file system. These archived log files will not be included in the backup.

Missing files N

Query returned M distinct files

Optionally, many lines containing an error similar to the following can exist in the logs:

Archived log file /Database Name/ARCHIVELOG/Date/Log sequence number does not exist in the active file system.

Note: N stands for number of archived log files missed from active file system and M stands for total number of archived log files found in the backup.
