This issue has been solved. See solution.
For the past few hours, for multiple Oracle/RMAN backups across multiple Unix/Linux servers, the backups are failing with the following RMAN error stack:
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-03009: failure of backup command on ch00 channel at 03/07/2013 14:08:04
ORA-19506: failed to create sequential file, name="bk_1367_1_809444249", parms=""
ORA-27028: skgfqcre: sbtbackup returned error
ORA-19511: Error received from media manager layer, error text:
VxBSACreateObject: Failed with error:

I suspect ther might be some kind of network problem between the NetBackup master and the database servers and would value any insights anyone out there might have on this.
