(DP) Support Tip: Oracle backup failed by "Object not found or access denied"
Configuration of an Oracle database has been done by using the Data Protector(DP) GUI without any error .
However , some error occurs as follows .
- When opening the backup specification at DP GUI , following error occurs .
[12:1005] Object not found or access denied.
- Backup session fails by the error "Object not found or access denied"
Name resolution of hostname is not consistent at Cell Manager , Oracle Server and GUI client system .
Configuration files are created with hostname of Oracle Server .
If the hostname can not be resolved consistently at every system , the error will occur because configuration file can not be found .
- Short hostname of Oracle Server is returned at GUI client system
- FQDN of Oracle Server is returned at Cell Manager system
Workaround / Fix
Name resolution of hostname should be consistent at every system . (including short hostname versus FQDN)
If the same hostname is returned at every system , configuration files will be created consistently and the error will not occur .
It can be a workaround to copy the configuration files to both of short hostname and FQDN .
Configuration files are stored under the following directory .
