I have a script that is called by NeTbackup (symantec) and uses rman to backup oracle database hosted on redhat linux server to a backup disk on the netbackup server.

The scripts are all good as it was working before as well as the Netbackup. However recently it only back up partially and now it fails to backup as shown below.

I have checked the connection from the Netback up and it is getting to the Linux server and vice-versa.

Any help most appreciated.
