Oracle 11g on Linux Fast Recovery Area (ASM) and Netbackup 7.1.0.4 (windows 2008x64)

Created: 15 Mar 2013 • Updated: 17 Mar 2013 | 2 comments

I'm trying to backup the oracle db to my MSDP diskpool.    Me and the Oracle admin followed this guide http://www.symantec.com/connect/articles/quick-oracle-backup-templete.

We went through all the steps but when running the backup it fails with status 6.   The error in the RMAN log shows the following.  Just seeing if anybody knows what this error means.   "cannot use backup/restore functions while using dispatcher".

Thanks for the link Nicolai,  That helped but now we get another error.   Just waiting for the Oracle DBA to help me look into this one as well.  Hes new to this as well so its trial and error for now.

INF - ORA-12520: TNS:listener could not find available handler for requested type of server
