RE: veritas backup via RMAN troubles

I had a remarkably similar experience a few months ago with Legato NetWorker and performed all of the steps you listed with the same results. The problem turned out to be very simple. The SA installed the 64-bit version of the Legato Networker client because it is a 64-bit server. However, we were running a 32-bit version of Oracle on it. Installing the 32-bit client solved the problem.  

I am mentioning this since your post did not indicate if you are using 64-bit Oracle on that server.

AIX 5.1, oracle 9ir2(, veritas 4.5

followed instructions for installing veritas on disk, got the agent, did NOT relink oracle executable, but ran the oracle install script so the link from /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/libobk.a64 is linked to $ORACLE_HOME/lib/libobk.a

Set(and unset multiple times), LIBPATH, LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

Continue to get ORA-27211 Failed to load media management library.

Been thru RMAN chapters multiple times, I'm totally out of ideas(and read every damn document on metalstink about this error).

I've also tried to use the dummy MML library and that works fine.

What the heck am I doing wrong?

thanks, joe
