Re: RMAN testing

The problem is that the first run of the RMAN happens successfully and
creates backup files in "/psoft/*u02*/...", but the second run looks for
file in $OH/dbs (/psoft/*u01*). It is trying to recover files in OH/dbs. In
the beginning (yesterday when I started testing) /psoft/u01 was where RMAN
was doing the backup. I delete the old backups several times and rerun the
RMAN. Somehow RMAN seems to want to restore in the original location
of OH/dbs only in the second run.

Is there any command to tell RMAN not to look in OH/dbs while doing the
restore in the second run? I run crosscheck after deleting backups.


RMAN *second* run looking for files in OH/dbs (/psoft/u01...) :
