We have Oracle 11gR2 RAC database on two nodes. We also have a RMAN backup script that works fine, using a recovery catalog database which is located in a town 20km from the data center. The script for database backup works fine, and is started from crontab Job or from Oracle dbconsole (for now it works from crontab). A recovery procedure is checked and everything is working properly.
The problem is that the script runs from the first node in the cluster, and if the node is turned off, backup can't be run. How can we ensure that our script have a failover backup version. We also tried to do the backup over dbconsole but this only works if the node from which to start job was started.
Essentially the question is "How to ensure that our backup works, whether or not both nodes are active"
