Rman fails to backup files after IP change

This has me stumped for the last 2 days or so. We had to change the IP address of one of our database servers (167.x.x.x to 10.x.x.x address). All went well, after I remembered to change /etc/inet/ipnodes as well
(d'oh!), except that RMAN no longer can communicate with the Netbackup sbt.

The error logged is:

channel ch00: starting piece 1 at 2009-07-03 16:26:07 released channel: ch00

RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-03002: failure of backup plus archivelog command at 07/03/2009 16:26:32

ORA-19511: Error received from media manager layer, error text:

(end log snippet)

Oracle doco says that this is Netbackup throwing an error, but running the Netbackup bhpdb process with log level 5 does not give any more info than "script exited with error", meaning the RMAN script. The disk backup from this same machine, via the same disk-then-tape method as the RMAN backup, still completes perfectly well.

Any clues welcome..

The versions are:

Solaris: 10 11/06 s10s_u3wos_10 SPARC
NetBackup: 5.1 MP6
