Hi List,

We are trying to configure the RMAN backup directly into tape. We getting the following error when we try to take the backup after creating the softlink from $ORACLE_HOME/lib for pointing to /opt/omni/lib/

RMAN> 2> 3> 4>

RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============

ORA-19554: error allocating device, device type: SBT_TAPE, device name: ORA-27211: Failed to load Media Management Library

The above error occurs for the both and The omniback version we use is 5.5

There is an another 64 bit library file for the omniback, When this file is used in the softlink the error message shows as follows.
