RMAN and Oracle 9.2.0.5

When make a backup from archivlog from the oracle DB, the follow message find in the alert.log from oracle:

Mon May 01 22:48:48 2006
ARCH: Evaluating archive log 1 thread 1 sequence 9151
ARCH: Beginning to archive log 1 thread 1 sequence 9151
Creating archive destination LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_1: 'D:\ORACLE\ARCHIVE\ABI\ARC09151.001'
Mon May 01 22:48:48 2006
ARC1: Evaluating archive log 1 thread 1 sequence 9151
ARC1: Unable to archive log 1 thread 1 sequence 9151
Log actively being archived by another process
Mon May 01 22:48:48 2006
ARCH: Completed archiving log 1 thread 1 sequence 9151

Now my question: is the Backup completed or failed ???
Which Logfile is "Log actively being archived by another"

Thanks for help

Shalom maxime,

The backup failed. It should not be relied upon.

Archive logging is active on this database and the backups attempt to set a checkpoint(re resotre point) failed.

The archive log set needs to be fixed and the backup re-run.

Since you hae a D: drive, this also points to a problem of where you posted. This is Linux and you are lucky to get good help here.
