This problem can occur on any platform.


RAC database installation with 3 nodes.  Each instance has two destinations configured for archiving. RMAN backup's will be run from only one of the three nodes - i.e all 3 nodes will not be used.

1. LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_1 is set to the local file system of each node /PATH/ 
2. LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_2 is set to an ASM disk group +FRA

How can you tell rman to backup the archivelogs from the FRA (flash recovery area), so that a connection to each node in the RAC cluster does not have to be connected to?
