Restored in place.
Yes to the catalog.
Database is open and useable.

Also, did you rename the restored database to something else or restore in place and replace the primary? Are you using a RMAN catalog or the controlfile? Did you open the restore? It sounds like RMAN is confused about what it is supposed to back up. [] On Behalf Of Sent: Monday, April 27, 2009 1:31 PM

just a shot in the dark but have you switched a logfile since you do resetlogs?

rman backup is failing after a restore - entire script

Sent by:  

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
