RMAN no channel allocated for maintenance

Posted by Pavan DBA on December 23, 2010


Many a times, when you issue some commands in RMAN you may receive following error

RMAN> run
{
allocate channel c1 device type sbt_tape;
delete noprompt obsolete;
}

released channel: c1
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-03002: failure of crosscheck command at 12/23/2010 10:57:21
RMAN-06091: no channel allocated for maintenance (of an appropriate type)

Cause:
This is because of command change across versions especially between 9i and 10g. The command which we used above is for 10g and will not work in 9i.

Solution:
Use the below way to use rman commands in 9i

RMAN> allocate channel for maintenance type sbt_tape;

allocated channel: ORA_MAINT_SBT_TAPE_1
channel ORA_MAINT_SBT_TAPE_1: sid=1059 devtype=SBT_TAPE
channel ORA_MAINT_SBT_TAPE_1: VERITAS NetBackup for Oracle – Release 6.0 (2008012304)
