Re: connect to Rman via NET8

hi,

loging in as RMAN is similar to loging in using SQLPLUS.

can you check if you can successfully using sqlplus on the the client workstation?

Re: connect to Rman via NET8

Asif,

To use rman, you must be able to connect as sysdba:

sqlplus /nolog
connect user/pass as sysdba

You can use:

rman target / rcvcat user/pass@RCAT

However, Omniback does not have the option to connect as a local authenticated user. You must use a password file to integrate it with Omniback.

Thanks,

Re: connect to Rman via NET8

1.any other method to connect Rman instead of passwordfile
- No.

2. If create know password file what happed crruent user .
- The "SYS" and "SYSTEM" user cannot be used in this way. Besides, you really don't want to use the sys and system accounts for this. Creating a new user and granting sysdba to it would be better.

3. how to know oracle is using password file
- The password file will be $OH/dbs/orapw${ORACLE_SID}. You need to set the "remote_login_passwordfile" parameter to "exclusive" and bounce the database. This should show up in the v$parameter view afterwards.

Thanks,

Re: connect to Rman via NET8

It is not using any file. The file will be "orapw" if you set the parameter to shared. Normally, it is just as easy to use exclusive and a file for each database. Otherwise, if that file is lost, you will need to rebuild it for all of the databases.

Re: connect to Rman via NET8

This will not affect the users on the database, only the ability to access sysdba remotely. You would have to regrant this ability if you lose this file (I think).
