RMAN Resync Fails With ORA-00904 after applying 12.1.0.2.161018 Bundle Patch (24340679) (Doc ID 2201135.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 06, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 12.1.0.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

RMAN backups of 12.1.0.2 target database start failing after applying 12.1.0.2.161018 Bundle Patch (24340679) to Oracle Home of RMAN executable used to trigger backups. Typically, all operations fail when connected to catalog during resync phase:

In this particular setup, RMAN backups are triggered from RMAN executable of a common Oracle home (i.e. RMAN executable of target database Oracle Home is not used to trigger the backup). The error is seen when 12.1.0.2.161018 Bundle Patch is applied to the common Oracle Home (whose RMAN executable is used to trigger backup) but not the target database Oracle Home.

We verified that patch is properly applied (and relevant datapatch is executed against patched databases as pert of post install steps). Also we ran UPGRADE CATALOG from the patched RMAN executable to update the recovery catalog schema, still the error is not fixed.
