10.2.0.4 database, in today's duplication RMAN tried to find monthly cold backup instead of hotbackup that it usually takes. Monthly cold backup was taken after the hotbackup, and duplication starts some time after that. I know, controllfile tried to find the last backup, but after failing to find it (it is unaccessible from the host that performs duplication) it did not try to find the hotbackup (which is accessible by the new host), instead it was searching for previous monthly cold backups. This seems TAG related (these 2 backups have different tags) and I just wonder if I could explicitly set tag from which I could perform duplication, so I can avoid this happening again?
