BR*Tools RMAN_PREP issue


On our NW 7.4 ABAP system with Oracle 11G we face issues with the RMAN_PREP activity. (We did test this also with the latest version of BR*Tools!)

We use the feature on all of our systems, but only the NW 7.4 ABAP is not functioning properly.

Backups etc are running fine so hopefully you have some thought that can fix this issue...
