Bonjour Chaps,

Windows 2003

New server arrives. Installation and db build complete. db registered with RMAN catalog. Backup fails with :-

Starting backup at 30-DEC-04
channel t1: starting full datafile backupset
channel t1: specifying datafile(s) in backupset
including current controlfile in backupset
channel t1: starting piece 1 at 30-DEC-04
released channel: t1
RMAN-00571: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ======
RMAN-00571: ==================================================
RMAN-03009: failure of backup command on t1 channel at 12/30/2004 11:59:54
ORA-27206: requested file not found in media management catalog

Checked metalink....

No apparent problems with bp.conf registry setting
No '/' in format command
No dodgy parameters (mainly default at the mo).

Server bods reluctant to upgrade to latest Veritas patch (backups work on all other servers)

Anyone else had this?? Or any pointers? Is it a Win2003 thing? Thanks.
