Does it exist on disk? Have you done a RESETLOGS or anything else odd? – Phil May 9 '14 at 15:21
No. it exists on tape and daily backup script runs but today it completed with error. any solution? – sweetritz May 9 '14 at 16:05
This mostly happens when more than one RMAN session runs at the same time (in the same database of course). If I were you, I would review the backup schedule and logs, check the possibility of overlapping backups (e.g. full backup and archivelog backup running at same time). The V$RMAN_OUTPUT view may also contain some useful insight on this case. – Balazs Papp May 9 '14 at 17:05
