You'll need to be able to connect to the tape from the target node. So you'll need to install all necessary drivers on the target machine and test that Oracle can read from it.

Ok can I have example?
Richard OlutolaConsultantCommented:
Unfortunately I can't help with this because when I dealt with tape drives in the past I backed up to disk from RMAN and then  archived to tape so that Oracle is available quickly.
I recall briefly dealing with direct tape backup/restore on a project and you have to specify SBT_TAPE in RMAN. You'll need to know the tape drive details so you get the correct installation files.
Also, read a bit about Oracle MML - Media Management Layer.
I hope this helps a bit more but I'm afraid that's all I can offer right now without going through some old notes which I don't currently have access to.
IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

First install all necessary drivers on the target machine as rolutola said.
Then configure the tape channel similar to this:
CONFIGURE CHANNEL DEVICE TYPE 'SBT_TAPE' PARMS  'ENV=(TDPO_OPTFILE=/usr/tivoli/tsm/client/oracle/bin64/tdpo.opt)';

Open in new window

Good luck!

Thanks in Exadata, it's necessary to check the node NB_ORA_CLIENT running rman backup.
