    Strange situation with ORA-00245: control file backup failed

    Saugat Chatterjee
      I have a strange situation

      yesterday my RMAN backup failed with ORA-00245: control file backup failed; target is likely on a local file system

      BUT BUT BUT

      today when i refire the backup kit worked perfectly,i didnt change any of the settings related to the snapshot controlfile,the location of my snapshot controlfile on both the nodes is as folows

      on node 1:-
      CONFIGURE SNAPSHOT CONTROLFILE NAME TO '/oracle/app/oracle/oracle/product/11203/db/dbs/snapcf_wbcdb1.f'; # default
      on node 2:-
      CONFIGURE SNAPSHOT CONTROLFILE NAME TO '/oracle/app/oracle/oracle/product/11203/db/dbs/snapcf_wbcdb2.f'; # default
      i am firing the backup from node1

      wat could be the cause for this strange behaviour???

      i am using Extended RAC on Linux platform
      11g Release 11.2.0.3.0
