RMAN-03009: failure of Control File and SPFILE Autobackup command on ORA_DISK_1 channel at 12/15/2011 05:24:57
ORA-00245: control file backup operation failed
RMAN-08132: WARNING: cannot update recovery area reclaimable file list
Rman creates the copy of the control file as the snapshot control file for read consistency. In Oracle 11gR2 RAC database, the backup mechanism changed and all the instances may write to the snapshot controlfile. Snapshot control file must be accessible to all the instance and nodes. For Non-RAC database doesn’t make any difference.
Verify your snapshot control file location. Reconfigure the snapshot control file location to a shared location using RMAN configure command.
