I have an RMAN backup which is failing with the following:
RMAN-03007: retryable error occurred during execution of command: backup
RMAN-07004: unhandled exception during command execution on channel t2
RMAN-10035: exception raised in RPC: ORA-19502: write error on file "online_db_SRVVOL_443356451_2_1", blockno 11992449 (blocks

Recovery Manager complete.

The platforms are Oracle 8.1.7 and solaris 2.6
Are you using Legato or Veritas... to do backups with RMAN?
are you writting the backup to tape or disk?
Veritas 3.2 and onto DLTs.
Has this worked in the past?
I've seen this when the Veritas License had expired.
Has worked before and as far as the license is concerned - there is none and is a one tme buy offer.
I'm sorry I can't give you the fix but I think it points to Veritas side more than the Oracle side (only my opinion)
Couple of thoughts:
Have you taken backups with Veritas at this time of day before? - Within Veritas you can configure a backup window and any backup started outside this window will fail. This could result in your error as Oracle would not be able to write the require info. Do you have a backup window?
If I remember correctly there is also a setting that will prevent a backup running after x minutes of the last backup. So if this is set to 600 then once you've taken a backup you can't take another one through Veritas for 10Hrs (600 Mins).
Can you use Veritas to write to the tapes without using RMAN?
If you can't then it's probably a problem with Veritas and not Oracle
If you can then has anything changed in the Veritas/Oracle configuration recently?
Can you take a RMAN backup to disk?
Hope the above help solve the prob....
thanx, one of your ideas worked. The problem is with veritas and am not able to copy the file onto tape from OS. So digging it out with sys admins.
Some info - the window has been set to 24 hrs and the problem is when taking backups.
