Hi Everyone,

We've recently encountered a problem restoring an Oracle Database.  This is the
first time we have tried to restore a database that is setup under Oracle Fail
Safe and we are not sure if this is the problem. Below is the detail.  Please
advise if you have any suggestions.

### What version and patchset level of the database are you running? ###
Oracle8i Enterprise Edition Release 
PL/SQL Release 
TNS for 32-bit Windows: Version 
NLSRTL Version 
In addition, the databases are setup in Oracle Fail Safe Version 3.1.2.

### Please describe your problem: ###
We are using Veritas media software and RMAN to do backups on a database 
created through the Oracle Applications 11i Rapid Install. The database is 
setup in OFS on a clustered environment. We've had no problems with the 
backups, but when I attempted to restore to a point-in-time from the RMAN 
backup the Veritas log file indicated that the operation completed successfully
(in 11 minutes) and the NT batch job was still sitting at RMAN-03022: compiling
command: IRESTORE. Only the 3 control files were restored. There were 3 tapes
needed for the restore (1 full and 2 incrementals). We verified that the correct
tapes were in the ATL and checked the log files from the RMAN backups and all of
the files were successfully backed up. We attempted to do the point-in-time
recovery with various dates/times and always had the same results. We chose
times that would have used just the first tape, the first and second tapes, and
all three. No errors are returned but the job just sits on the RMAN command
above. The database was taken off-line in OFS before the restore was attempted,
and the database was started in nomount mode. The database is ~20Gg.
We are using Veritas Netbackup Datacenter 3.4. We've applied patches J0850645
and 3411. The Oracle backups are done on DLT7000 with DLT Type IV tapes.

### If you are receiving errors, please list exact error messages and text: ###
