What would cause this with rman

I use Tivoli tdpo for my media manager. They provide a utility - tdposync - which crosschecks backup pieces in the tdpo library against the rman catalog to see if it has any that are no in the rman catalog. It's sort of the inverse of rman's crosscheck.

Tdposync shows some backup pieces that it can't find in the rman repository, so I go into rman and run "crosscheck backup". It finds nothing wrong. I verify this by running "list expired backup" and it lists nothing. I go back into tdposync and the backup pieces that it listed 2 minutes prior are no longer listed.

Any ideas? Does rman crosscheck do more to the catalog than what is listed in the documentation? Does it perhaps silently fix something? Received on Fri Apr 11 2008 - 09:20:38 CDT
