Affected NV Version: NetVault: Backup 7.4.x and greater
OS Version: All platforms supported by Oracle RMAN APM
Plugin version: Oracle RMAN APM 4.50
Application version: Oracle RMAN 9.2.x, 10.1.x, 10.2.x
Oracle RMAN backup including control files will fail if Oracle autobackup is set to ON, and nvpluginaccess authentication is incomplete or incorrect.
Backups will fail with message similar to the following:
Warning – Oracle RMAN APM configuration file contains incorrect Account/Password/Domain information
Job Message – RMAN-03009: failure of Control File and SPFILE Autobackup command on [channel name] channel at [date]
Job Message – ORA-19506: failed to create sequential file, name=[file name]
Job Message – ORA-27028: skgfqcre: sbtbackup returned error
Backing up a control file when autobackup is set to ON requires the backup administrator to run the NetVault command "nvpluginaccess" to set correct authentication between the client and server.
Details of this command can be found in section 1.5.1.a of the RMAN APM guide, which is available from http://www.bakbone.com/support/product_documentation/default.asp
