Unable to browse oracle templates on AIX LPAR

Created: 08 Oct 2012 | 3 comments


Netbackup 7.1 server on windows server 2008 R2 STD x64 (IBM Xseries)

Netbackup client on AIX LPAR 6 (IBM Power7)

Connection either ethernet and optical fiber

Oracle v10g


After reinstalling netbackup server on the master server I can´t browse the oracle templates made in the past without any problem in the client side. In the logs (located in/usr/openv/netbackup/logs/user_ops/dbext/oracle)  we can appreciate an "insufficient privileges" problem:

RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
INF - RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
INF - RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
INF - ORA-01031: insufficient privileges
INF - Recovery Manager complete.
INF - End of Recovery Manager output.
INF - End Oracle Recovery Manager.

We have checked user connection to databse and it´s ok, we have also checked the dba role for sys user. We have ran the java console in the client side and in the server side and both have same behaviour, impossible to browse the oracle instances. We can browse the machine files in the standard view.

We have review the hosts file, oratab file, nb.conf and aparently everything it´s alright.

We access in tha java console with root user, we have checked with oracle user and it behaves in the same way.

I need some help

Thanks in advance.

It seems your oracle user does not have sufficient privileges to take backup.
Check if you can take backup into DISK on RMAN without NetBackup.

Run like below on rman prompt. Male sure you run rman command with user you specified on your backup script or backup template.

allocate channel t1 type disk;
format '/path_where_you_want_to_write_backu/%d_t%t_s%s_p%p' DATABASE;
Release channel t1;
