We are using third party backup product EMC DD BOOST. I am able to successfully backup the database ONLY if I set database parameter BACKUP_TAPE_IO_SLAVES=FALSE.
The vendor wants us to set the parameter to TRUE, but when I do this the backup fails with the following message:
RMAN-03009: failure of allocate command on ch01 channel at 08/12/2015 10:15:12
ORA-19554: error allocating device, device type: SBT_TAPE, device name:
ORA-27211: Failed to load Media Management Library
