    Using OSB 64bit to backup Oracle 32bit is possible?

      Hi all,
      I'm trying to backup database to tape using OSB.

      Oracle Database Version: Oracle10gR2 Standard Edition 32bit
      Oracle Secure Backup Version: 64bit
      S.O.: Windows 2008 R2 Standard 64bit

      But I'm getting the following error:

      RMAN> run
      2> {
      3> allocate channel c1 type sbt;
      4> backup database;
      5> }

      using target database control file instead of recovery catalog
      RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
      RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
      RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
      RMAN-03009: failure of allocate command on c1 channel at 05/15/2013 15:35:36
      ORA-19554: error allocating device, device type: SBT_TAPE, device name:
      ORA-27211: Failed to load Media Management Library

      Could anybody help with this issue?
      I think this happens because OSB architecture is 64bit while RDBMS architecture is 32bit. Can you confirm for me?
      Thanks in advance.
