Error description

  • Oracle alternate restore through IBM Spectrum Protect Plus fails
    with below error if source databases has ASM subdirs under
    +DATA/<ORACLE_DB>/ folder:
    
    ERROR,1643879927751,<time+date+timezone>,2,CTGGF0237,[IP-addres
    s]<ORA-DB>: RMAN-03002: failure of restore command at <DATE TIME
    ERROR,1643879927754,<time+date+timezone>,2,CTGGF0237,[IP-addres
    s]<ORA-DB>: RMAN-06026: some targets not found - aborting restor
    
    The Oracle DB has some dbf files under sub-folder, like:
            "name" : "+DATA/<ORACLE_DB>/<sub-folder>/*.dbf",
    
    The RMAN log shows:
    
    ORA-19504: failed to create file
    "+DATA/<ORACLE_DB>/<sub-folder>/test.dbf"
    ORA-17502: ksfdcre:4 Failed to create file
    +DATA/<ORACLE_DB>/<sub-folder>/test.dbf
    ORA-15173: entry '<sub-folder>' does not exist in directory
    '<ORACLE_DB>'
    
    During restore, only +DATA/<ORACLE_DB> is created on alternate
    location. The sub-folder, like +DATA/<ORACLE_DB>/<sub-folder>,
    is not created, so RMAN fails to create file
    +DATA/<ORACLE_DB>/<sub-folder>/test.dbf during restore.
    
    Versions affected: 10.1.*
