Every Oracle RAC based Database registered in SnapCenter, even in a RAConeNode configuration, refers to a Host Group instead of a single Host reference.
To allow for a host to be in maintenance, it's possible to select preferred hosts for the backup to go through in case of a host being offline or in maintenance.
However, if the Host Group ends up with only a single Host entry by changing a multi-node RAC Database into a RACOneNode database, and the preferred host list only contained one node, it is nolonger selected for the right host during initial discovery, and the backup fail:
