Oracle RMAN backup through netbackup exiting with status code 255

Hi,

 

I have created a netbackup policy to run oracle RMAN backup. The RMAN backup is succeeding with no issues. All the default application backup jobs report as successful. But the actual user intiated job shows as failure. In the activity log could see job exiting with exit code 255. Can anyone throw some light upon so as to why this is happening?

Below is the error from activity log.

4/21/2015 12:19:23 PM - connected; connect time: 0:00:03
4/21/2015 12:19:23 PM - Info bphdb(pid=6940) Backup started

4/21/2015 12:27:34 PM - Error bpbrm(pid=4704) from client mscsdb: ERR - exit status: <255>

4/21/2015 12:27:36 PM - end writing
unimplemented error code 255(255)

failed executing command "D:\Scripts\Oracle-MSCSDB-WF.cmd" Were the NBU sample scripts used to create this script on the client? Which logon account is used for NBU Client Service on Oracle server? The default is LocalSystem which probably does not have sufficient Oracle rights. Can you confirm that OS and DB compatibility lists have been checked?

Hi Marianne,

Yes, the sample scripts were used to create the backup scripts by my colleague.Issue is resolved now.Took a closer look and found that the issue was with the syntax of an additional line added to the script after backup part of script. RMAN was returning error at that line which was not logged into the backup log.

Thanks for the initiative to help.
