Red Hat Enterprise AS Release 3 (Taroon Update 4)  

Backups have been working fine for months, when this morning on the daily archive log backup I saw the following.    

Starting Control File Autobackup at 26.06.09

RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00601: fatal error in recovery manager
RMAN-03004: fatal error during execution of command RMAN-10039: error encountered while polling for RPC completion on channel ORA_DISK_2
RMAN-10006: error running SQL statement: select act from x$ksusex where sid=:1 and serial=:2
RMAN-10002: ORACLE error: ORA-03113: end-of-file on communication channel
*** ERROR: Errors in backup! ***

Checked in the catalog and the relevant backups are AVAILABLE inc. the controlfile one. DB was up with no issues and the archivelogs backed up had been deleted as expected.  

This was in the alert log....

And this is what was in the trace file produced.

Anyone seen this before. Had a bit of a google and been in Metalink but couldn't see anything exactly the same as this.  

Regards & TIA
