V$RMAN_STATUS OUTPUT_DEVICE_TYPE is Null When Backup is Executed from Second Node (Doc ID 1450853.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 29, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.1.0 to 11.2.0.4 [Release 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

 
Rman backup scheduled on 11g on RAC database.
The back gets triggered from any node and we have no control over it.

The problem is whenever the backup is triggered and runs successfully from any node different from Node 1, the OUTPUT_DEVICE_TYPE column doesn't get updated in v$rman_status  view giving us a false information.
