RMAN BACKUP TO VERITAS NETBACKUP HANGS ON SBTINFO2 WAIT EVENT (Doc ID 1076903.1)

Last updated on JUNE 22, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 10.2.0.4 and later
HP-UX Itanium
Oracle Database: RMAN, Netbackup 6.5
***Checked for relevance on 29-Apr-2013***



Symptoms

RMAN Backup to Veritas Netbackup seems to hang on SBTINFO2 wait event after all the backup pieces are written. It causes unnecessary delay in completing the backup jobs in time.

For example:

+ At Netbackup side: Netbackup finishes the backup at 14:27:35.

+ At RMAN side: RMAN finishes at 14:33:33. That's extra 5 mins in sbtinfo2 wait.

So it appears that RMAN is waiting on SBTINFO2 wait event merely to finish the backup even if the actual job of writing the backup pieces is finished before !

Changes

This issue occurs after upgrading backup servers to HPUX 11.31 and Netbackup 6.5 with MP5. It might also occur in similar upgrades.
