What do you have in your init<SID>.sap configuration file? Did you update that to point the "backup_dev_type" to util_file? You also have to point the util_par_file parameter to the init<SID>.utl file so that brbackup looks in the right place.
I have a small test db called CER and the .sap file for that contains this...
# backup device type
# [tape | disk | pipe | tape_auto | pipe_auto | util_file | util_vol]
# default: tape
backup_dev_type = util_file
# backup utility parameter file
# default: no parameter file
#util_par_file = ?/dbs/init@.utl
util_par_file = initCER.utl
Consequently my initCER.utl file contains this:
My client test server is called lx64cos51-3 and I have the server set up to a 2 stream policy.
Let me know if this helps.
