Oracle backups failing intermittenly with status code 636(read from input socket failed). Few backups are successful and few backups are failing. Has anyone noticed this kind of issue ? Backups are using the appliance.

Oracle client -- Solaris and NetBackup version 7.0

Media server -- 5220 appliance

Status 636 relates to synthetic backups.  I've not seen that feature used with Oracle backup.  Please attach information on your environment (policy details, rman script, etc.)

We have not confiured synthetic backups... And we recently migrated the client from master server 7.1.0.3 to 7.5.0.5. It was working fine on old server. On new server also it works fine for sometime.

The issue was resolved after making TCP keepalive value to 15 mins. Actually the client is behind firewall.
