Is this possible that D:\ is a shared drive and it is running into permissions where rman is not able to read the files

I'm having a slightly weird situation here that I don't fully know how to troubleshoot.  

We ran a one-off backup to refresh a test environment, transferred the pieces to the test environment, cataloged, all the normal steps.  

The restore is failing with errors like:

RMAN-03002: failure of restore command at 04/04/2014 20:54:22

RMAN-12009: command aborted because some backup pieces could not be located

RMAN-12008: could not locate backup piece D:\LATESTBACKUP\MHGPMS_FULL_20140404_C5P4S87E_1_1   But listing the backup pieces, RMAN seems to know about it and thinks it is available:

  Backup Set Copy #1 of backup set 17760

  Device Type Elapsed Time Completion Time Compressed Tag

  • ------------ --------------- ---------- ---

  DISK 00:14:59 04-APR-14 YES MHGPMS_FULL_2014-04-04       List of Backup Pieces for backup set 17760 Copy #1

    BP Key Pc# Status Piece Name

  • --- ----------- ----------

    17900 1 AVAILABLE
D:\LATESTBACKUP\MHGPMS_FULL_20140404_C5P4S87E_1_1   Oracle on Windows. Any ideas where I should begin looking?
