RMAN : ORA-06532: Subscript outside of limit

This error can be caused when you drop tablespaces from a database in 11.2.0 –  Bug 9909828.  I also saw this happen after rebuilding a Data Guard Standby (11.2.0) after it failed with an ORA 600 error and wouldn’t work. As I’ve found this solution actually fixes quite a few RMAN issues.
You can correct this (and other things) by unregistering the database from the catalog and then registering again.

 connect target
 connect catalog rcatmgr@p10dba
 unregister database;
 register database;
 <run your backup again.
