Re: Oracle backup failed using Rman with status code 6

What version of Netbackup?
Are you using the RMAN scripts found in the samples folder?
When backing up Oracle using Netbackup scripts an error 6 is usually produced by a syntax error within the script being called during backup.
Also make sure the Netbackup Client Service is using an account that has SYSDBA priviledges.
This guide is your friend:

Status code 6


I am facing the same problem of oracle database backups exiting with status code 6. When i check in the netbackup logs where the database is, i get the following error;

released channel: ch00
released channel: ch01
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================

Can anyone please assist me. I really need a workround for this urgently.



version of netbackup?

1. What is the version of netbackup you are using? There was an issue in 5.0 upto MP3

The VERITAS NetBackup (tm) for Oracle agent and RMAN both show failures when explicitly deleting backup images from the NetBackup image catalog and the Oracle RMAN catalog. Failure messages include "Failed with The sequence of calls is incorrect." & "ORA-27027: sbtremove2 returned error" respectively.

2. Ask your DBA to check the script
