  1. RMAN/Netbackup errors - Error 6 Issues


    I am currently testing Oracle 10GR2 backup and recovery in a RAC setting using
    RMAN and Netbackup but I am stuck at this point, unsure of wat to fix. Here
    are the error codes I am receiving. Anyone with any ideas please let me know.

    Here is the Netbackup logs from client bphdb log:
    10:06:43.475 [3416176] <16> bphdb: ERR - bphdb exit status = 6: the backup
    failed to back up the requested files

    10:06:43.475 [3416176] <4> bphdb: INF - EXIT STATUS 6: the backup failed
    to back up the requested files

    Here is the RMAN error stack:


    RMAN-00571: ================================================== =========
    RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
    RMAN-00571: ================================================== =========

    parms=""

    My very first troubleshooting step in a new/changed RMAN/NBU environment
    is to see if a trivial RMAN script (allocate one channel, type disk, backup
    database) that doesn't involve NetBackup at all works. If not, have the
    DBA call you when he's got RMAN installed correctly.

    After RMAN can back up to disk, change to sbttape; that will test 95% of
    your setup and give you something basic to troubleshoot if it doesn't work.
    At that point, become one with the NetBackup for Oracle SAG's troubleshooting
    section. It is first-rate, explaining the interactions between all the moving
    parts and how to prove whether they have happened or not.

    I have run into this when a script I wrote exited because on a condition
    before the
    backup actually started. The RMAN backup commands were never issued, therefore
    no files were backed up.
