A restore job to restore Oracle data to an Oracle instance fails with following error under RMAN output

Error Message

RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00601: fatal error in recovery manager
RMAN-03004: fatal error during execution of command
ORA-01089: immediate shutdown in progress - no operations are permitted
ORA-01089: immediate shutdown in progress - no operations are permitted



This issue will come up if more than one restore job is restoring data to same Oracle instance. One of the restore job may require database instance to be restarted and if another restore job is running at the same time it may fail because of the sudden database restart and may leave the database in an inconsistent state.



It is not recommended to run two or more restore jobs simultaneously for a given Oracle instance as this might lead to the Oracle database being left in an inconsistent state. Backup Exec does not support this scenario.
