You probably mean that you have the crystal ball you're talking about.

It probably did show you that I haven't investigated this stuff for weeks now. And it also did tell you that Oracle support hasn't been contacted yet.

But if I'm asking if anybody is experiencing any sort of problem running rman to backup a cluster, it's because we (oracle and our team) have not been able to come up with any explanation so far.

But if you are not competent on this subject, don't waste your (and our) time with this very stupid answer.

Thank you for your not helping us and in wasting our time.
