Status code 6 is the generic error for database backup failurs. you need to check in detail for reason of failurs

1) does it ever worked fine?

2) let us know how it set up?

3) what is the job details status, dbclient log and RMAN log are saying?( attach those logs to this post)

The first log to check is the rman output file.
Location of this log can normally be found in the script. 
Please post this file.

Next log is dbclient on the Oracle client. It does not exist by default and must be created with 777 permission:
mkdir /usr/openv/netbackup/logs/dbclient
chmod 777 /usr/openv/netbackup/logs/dbclient

As per my previous post - location of this log can normally be found in the script. 
You really need to work with the dba to troubleshoot as status 6 is a generic code for failure on the database side.

To see a full list of logs that are needed for db backups, download the Admin Guide for each agent and go through the Troubleshooting chapter to get a list of logs for that particular agent.
You can find links to all manuals in the 'Handy NBU links' in my signature.
