Hi, my Oracle database was previously being backed up by Rubrik backup software to cloud. I have paused that backup because I wanted to take local RMAN backups, for cloning purposes. However, RMAN is behaving strangely:

1) The backup... command completes "successfully"
2) "list backup" only shows the controlfile backup, no datafile backups.
3) crosscheck does not report any obsolete backups.

It is as if the datafile backups are not registering in the repository. The physical backup file is there on the disk, however.

I have included a screenshot of the basic steps and commands I did, for one datafile only for brevity. Can anyone recommend what might be going on? Thanks.

list copy;
I think you have configured your backup type to COPY, not BACKUPSET.

Is the rman client version compatible with rman repository schema? Is there a difference in the versions?
If a proper "resync catalog" did not work for you, try manually cataloging again
catalog start with

@JohnWatson, that worked, thanks so much!

Just curious, why are "copy" backups not registering in repository? Do they work just as a file copy? Thanks.

They are registered. You need to read up on the difference between BACKUP AS BACKUPSET ad BACKUP AS COPY, rather than just relying on the configured defaults (lookup CONFIGURE and SHOW) without thinking about whether they are suitable for you.
