I recently modified the RMAN servers to perform auto backup of the controlfiles, etc. After the change, the incremental’s worked without error.
When I Ran the Full RMAN backup, got the following errors :
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-03009: failure of Control File and SPFILE Autobackup command on ch00 channel at 08/03/2014 18:42:51
ORA-19506: failed to create sequential file, name=”c-2369888563-20140803-ff”, parms=””
ORA-27027: sbtremove2 returned error
ORA-19511: Error received from media manager layer, error text:
Failed to remove, c-2369888563-20140803-ff, from image catalog.
The reason why is the rman backups were NOT using the rman catalog for over a year (Commented out for some odd reason). The RMAN backups were running but without a catalog connection.
So when i added control file auto backup, I received this error.
Connect to RMAN using the rman catalog
run : rman> crosscheck archivelog all;
Run Full backup.
Once the crosscheck cleaned up all the archive logs since 2013, the full backup could be performed.
I also added the RMAN catalog to all the backups on this machine
