What kind of a restore did you do? Complete or point-in-time? Did you restore the control file during this restore?

Last week I was testing my first rman backup.  

I did a restore and it worked fine.  

Today I try to backup the restored database and get the following error: Here is my entire script. Do I have to drop and re-add the database to the catalog?  

RMAN> delete noprompt expired backup;

2> delete obsolete;
3> backup as compressed backupset database plus archivelog delete input;
4> exit;

allocated channel: ORA_DISK_1
channel ORA_DISK_1: sid=68 devtype=DISK  

RMAN retention policy will be applied to the command RMAN retention policy is set to recovery window of 21 days using channel ORA_DISK_1
