Niall, thanks for your response.The only time I would possibly want the offline 
would be to create a before-image serverbackup, prior to a major application 
upgrade, to be used to restore the server to before-upgrade image if something 
went wrong. Otherwise, the online rman backups are run daily.

Just curious really about why you might wish to have an offline backup at all. 
It's probably also worth noting that if you use the snapshot controlfile 
feature of RMAN then, starting with that needs to be on genuinely 
shared storage (tape obviously counts, but most people probably use disk for 
this purpose)
