CONFIGURE CHANNEL DEVICE TYPE DISK FORMAT '/media/disk/UATRMAN/ora_df%t_s%s_s%p';
You have configure the the default channel pointing to location "/media/disk/UATRMAN/". Clear the existing channel and configure a new channel pointing to the location which has enough disk space to hold the backups. Do as:
RMAN>configure channel device type disk format clear; RMAN>configure channel device type disk format '<location which has enough disk space>/ora_df%t_s%s_s%p';
You can take the backup to USB but it will be very slow. A local hard drive will be much faster.
You will see wait events for RMAN backup if you use USB.
Check out :
RMAN-06900, RMAN-06901 And ORA-03135 Errors backing up to a USB disk device [ID 604494.1]
If possible configure RMAN directly talk to tape.
You can make this change, but you will probably want to undo it soon after.
