Hi all,
  I keep getting a nagging RMAN error, perhaps someone out there can help.

My RMAN setup works great to backup the database, etc. .... but I tried to set it to "auto backup" the control file. However, everytime after a backup, when the "auto backup" starts, I get an error:

Starting Control File Autobackup at 29-SEP-05

RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-03015: error occurred in stored script full_bell1_nic_backup_plus_archlogs
RMAN-03002: failure of backup command at 09/29/2005 14:53:46 ORA-19715: invalid format for piece name

Here are my config settings:

RMAN> show all;

RMAN configuration parameters are:
CONFIGURE RETENTION POLICY TO RECOVERY WINDOW OF 7 DAYS; CONFIGURE BACKUP OPTIMIZATION OFF; # default CONFIGURE DEFAULT DEVICE TYPE TO DISK; # default CONFIGURE CONTROLFILE AUTOBACKUP ON;
CONFIGURE CONTROLFILE AUTOBACKUP FORMAT FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO
'/xfer/rman_backups/bell1_nic/bell1_nic_control_files/ctl_file_%T_%U_%F';
CONFIGURE DEVICE TYPE DISK PARALLELISM 1; CONFIGURE DATAFILE BACKUP COPIES FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO 1; # default CONFIGURE ARCHIVELOG BACKUP COPIES FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO 1; # default CONFIGURE MAXSETSIZE TO UNLIMITED; # default CONFIGURE SNAPSHOT CONTROLFILE NAME TO
'/xfer/oracle/app/oracle/product/920/dbs/snapcf_nic.f';

Any ideas why it won't successfully backup the controlfile??

Thanks,
-Fred S.
