We see this error in the RMAN output:

 

 Server Status:  Communication with the server has not been initiated or the server status has not been retrieved from the serve

Please ensure that the following log folders exist:

On client: dbclient (with 777 permission)

On master: bprd (NBU needs to be restarted to enable bprd log.)

On media server: bpbrm

Please copy logs to reflect process name (e.g. dbclient.txt) and post as File attachments.

We would normally ask for these logs;

From the Master/Media Server:
1. Bprd Log from Master
2. Bpbrm Log from Media
3. Bptm Log from Media
4. Run Bpclntcmd from both Master/Media and send me the outputs:
run /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd bpclntcmd -pn
run /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd bpclntcmd -hn client_hostname
run /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd bpclntcmd -ip <client_ip address>
5. bpconf file

From the Client:
1. Dbclient Log
2. Bphdb Log
3. Bpcd Log
4. user_ops/dbext/logs
5. Rman Script and Rman Output file
6. Run Bpclntcmd and send me the outputs:
run /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd bpclntcmd -pn
run /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd bpclntcmd -self
run /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd bpclntcmd -hn Master server
run /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd bpclntcmd -ip <master_ip address>
7. Directory listing:
/usr/openv/netbackup/logs/user_ops
/usr/openv/netbackup/logs/user_ops/dbext/logs

Where are you seeing the status 0, in Activity Monitor?

If so, do you see multiple jobs, parent job and child jobs?

Hi Marianne,

Actually the Oracle database and the OS has been upgraded and some configurations has been changed at Oracle Part.

So the DB team made some changes in Oracle and that resolved the issue.

Thanks for your help...

Thanks & Regards,
