I can know only what you post and what you post is that OS cannot find 'E:\ROL' directory.

By the way, you gave "format 'E:\rol\%u_%c','E:\rol\%u_%c'" so twice the same name, I doubt RMAN can write twice into the same file at the same time (assuming it uses the same unique name for both).
Try to first use only one value.

Sure but we will never know as OP refused to post the obvious result of DIR commands.
