Re: oracle rman backup messages

It would appear that your rman process has been denied access to shared memory resources.

ipcs command will show shared memory resources. It also shows owner.

Check the ownership on the segments with the ids in your message.

Check the id command of the user running rman and see if they should have access.

You MAY need to increase shared memory resources in the kernel. On 11i thats dynamic.

shmmax
shmseg

Beware of making too many segments. Don't raise shmax to more than 25% of total memory, which is defined as physical ram plus swap.

This could be as simple as running rman with the wrong user id.

Re: oracle rman backup messages

hi,

can you post the entire message file that you get if you run RMAN.

e.g.
rman catalog rman_db1/rman_db1@catdb msglog = catalog.log

or the Error message stack.

and did you see any error message in your alert log?

revert
