Hi. We're getting the following error about half-way through our
backup. This works on another machine (nearly identical) but will not
work on this one. We had the same problem under NB 3.1.1 but Veritas
wouldn't support that combo (3.1.1/Oracle 8.0.6)...

Here it is:

RMAN-08010: channel f2: including datafile 20 in backupset
RMAN-08010: channel f2: including datafile 13 in backupset
RMAN-08010: channel f2: including datafile 22 in backupset

Note the filename is "".

I've noticed some differences in the rman executable on both machines:

> [njmgt1]/apps/oracle/product/8.0.6/bin> sum rman*
> 50744 8612 rman
> 49471 8603 rmanO
> [njmgt2]/apps/oracle/product/8.0.6/bin> sum rman*
> 34384 8505 rman
> 49471 8603 rmanO

Any suggestions?? Thanks!
