RE: RMAN recovery from tape with automatic channels

The error does make it pretty clear that there was either a channel failure
or that the backup pieces are missing....

  I suspect it is an issue with the Veritas MML.

  There are other issues with this setup as well.
  For instance, ALLOCATE CHANNEL does not work with the PARMS argument.

  This is in a lab environment, and NBU will be upgraded to 6.0 later this
week.

  A rerun of the test may clear it up.

    I knew I should have included SHOW ALL

    The default device is set to SBT

    RMAN configuration parameters are:
    CONFIGURE RETENTION POLICY TO RECOVERY WINDOW OF 5 DAYS;
    CONFIGURE BACKUP OPTIMIZATION OFF; # default
    CONFIGURE DEFAULT DEVICE TYPE TO 'SBT_TAPE';
    CONFIGURE CONTROLFILE AUTOBACKUP ON;
    CONFIGURE CONTROLFILE AUTOBACKUP FORMAT FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO '%F'; #
default
    CONFIGURE DEVICE TYPE 'SBT_TAPE' PARALLELISM 2;
    CONFIGURE DEVICE TYPE DISK PARALLELISM 1; # default
    CONFIGURE DATAFILE BACKUP COPIES FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO 1; # default
    CONFIGURE ARCHIVELOG BACKUP COPIES FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO 1; # default
    CONFIGURE CHANNEL DEVICE TYPE 'SBT_TAPE' MAXOPENFILES 8;
    CONFIGURE MAXSETSIZE TO UNLIMITED; # default
    CONFIGURE SNAPSHOT CONTROLFILE NAME TO

      Not sure if this has anything to do with it, but is your default
device
      type also 'SBT_TAPE'?

      RMAN configuration parameters are:
      CONFIGURE DEFAULT DEVICE TYPE TO 'SBT_TAPE';
