ORA-00244 is an Oracle Known Error, not a DP-side issue.

Environment

Operating system: SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP4
Affected product: Data Protector A.10.70
 

Situation

Error message:

RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
rman-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-03009: backup command (on dev_0 channel) failed on DATE:TIME
ORA-00244: concurrent control file backup operation in progress
Recovery Manager has completed.
[Major] From: ob2rman@ORACLEHOSTNAME "" Time: DATE:TIME
            External utility reported error.
RMAN PID=12339
[Major] From: ob2rman@ORACLEHOSTNAME "" Time: DATE:TIME
            The database reported error while performing requested operation.

Cause

ORA-00244: concurrent control file backup operation in progress is an error in Oracle Database. Another program is performing a backup of the control file.
 

Resolution

Wait for the other backup operation to complete, then try to perform the backup operation again. Since the problem only occurs once, can continue to use the program as normal.

Alternatively, if the same error occurs again in the future, can also optimize the backup schedule to avoid multiple tasks backing up the same object at the same time, which may cause task conflicts again.
