Netbackup RMAN got error ORA-12850 for 1 instance

Level 4

we have recently been using RMAN with Netbackup to take Oracle instances for backup. For a particular instance, we have this error when we take an incremental backup. When we take a full backup of this instance, everything is OK. When the DBA takes an incremental backup on its side without going through Netbackup, it works. Have you ever encountered this problem?

Master Server: AIX 7.2 with NB 8.1.1

Media Server: Linux RD 7.5 with NB 8.1.1

Client: AIX 7.2 with NB client 8.1.1

From client logs /usr/openv/netbackup/logs/bpdbsbora
