Duplicating from backup location fails with the following errors:

ORA-00283: recovery session canceled due to errors
RMAN-11003: failure during parse/execution of SQL statement: alter database recover logfile 'F:\ORACLE\ORADATA\PROD\ARCHIVE\PROD_00010001S32350_0820700818.ARC'
RMAN-11001: Oracle Error:
ORA-00283: recovery session canceled due to errors
ORA-19755: could not open change tracking file
ORA-19750: change tracking file: 'O:\ORACLE\ORADATA\BLK_CHG_TRK.F'
ORA-27041: unable to open file
OSD-04002: unable to open file
O/S-Error: (OS 3) The system cannot find the path specified.

Since the path of the block change file is the same at target and auxiliary db there should be
no need to convert the filename.
