After executing a backup on standby site, sometimes, the snapshot controlfile is changed to the primary site configuration and next backup fails with:
RMAN error stack as below
RMAN-03009: failure of Control File and SPFILE Autobackup command on c1 channel at 05/22/2012 02:30:08
ORA-01580: error creating control backup file <path>/snapcf_xxxxx.f
