Just a shot in the dark here, but we have similar issues with Oracle RMAN in DR. When RMAN queries NetBackup for images, it sends the client name, as configured in NetBackup. If you are running backups from SERVERA and then trying to do a restore to SERVERB, you need to change SERVERB’s client name in NetBackup to SERVERA. I haven’t done this in a while,  but doing this in Windows used to require a reboot. (It won’t ask for a reboot, but RMAN won’t work until you do.) I believe Linux just requires the bp.conf be updated. I also throw the no.restrictions touch file to make sure NetBackup isn’t holding up the show.

I have an issue where 2 clients are backing up via RMAN to netbackup through the oracle agent.  Client A is the parent with data guard and Client B is the child or replica.  I'm told the clients share the same control file in rman and Client A backs up some of the files and Client B does as well.  When you do a restore from A or B it can't find the files that the other client backed up.  Netbackup has been configured such that each client can see the backups but RMAN is not correctly telling netbackup which client to get the files from.  Any ideas?
