AVDF Avbackup Script Returns Wrong Status

(Doc ID 2380202.1)

Last updated on MARCH 29, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall - Version 12.2.0.0 to 12.2.0.5 [Release 12.2 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Running the avbackup script is failing but the status of the bash script is 0:

 This is happening because the java command is successful despite the fact that it failed to backup the system. So even if the backup will fail the java  command will not crash so that the exit status returned to bash will be 1.
