DP 6.20 RMAN Integration with AIX 6.1 for SAP Backup oracle 11g


We are having a DP 6.20 which we are using for taking the SAP database backup on AIX 6.1 .

Our DB version is oracle .

Now we are planning to take the SAP backups using RMAN. I try to configure the RMAN using the HPDP integration guide for oracle SAP but getting this error while triggering the brbackup.

host command complete

RMAN> 2> 3> 4> 5>
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-03009: failure of allocate command on sbt_1 channel at 02/21/2013 09:43:14
ORA-19554: error allocating device, device type: SBT_TAPE, device name:
ORA-27211: Failed to load Media Management Library
Additional information: 8

I have done the below changes for RMAN integration.

1. I have created the below link in this path  /oracle_Home/lib using orasid user.

     ln -s /usr/omni/lib/libob2oracle8_64bit.a libobk.a

2. In file I have change the backup device type to rman_util and added the below value for rman_parms

rman_parms ="ENV=(OB2BARTYPE=SAP,OB2APPNAME=<SID>,OB2BARLIST=<Backup specifiation>)"

Can you please suggest if any other changes needs to be done.
