RMAN backups of HP-UX dedicated storage node fail with error "Dedicated storage node leda2 cannot save remote data from client cora127n1.melkweg.tld"
I opened a service request (# 35960002) about a problem we're having with RMAN backups on HP-UX cluster nodes. There isn't much progression in the case, so I thought maybe someone here might have some ideas how to solve this puzzle. Problems started when we upgraded the Networker software on the HP-UX nodes from 7.4.3 to 7.5.2. The HP-UX cluster nodes are also dedicated storage nodes. The file system backup is working fine. But the RMAN backups (client initiated) generate this error message:
input datafile fno=00009 name=/d10/oradata/tstcds02/user/ino_index/r152m001

ORA-19511: Error received from media manager layer, error text:
Dedicated storage node leda1 cannot save remote data from client cora127n1.melkweg.tld. (0:5:13)
We tried several things. we even re-installed the older Networker version 7.4.3, but still we receive the same error message. The curious thing is that we have a similar HP-UX cluster that we also upgraded along with this cluster and there we have no problem at all.
I hope someone has encountered this problem before and has an answer for this problem.
