RMAN error


When i tried executing a run command in RMAN environment which creates a file to download some data into it, it has thrown the following error:

RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-03009: failure of backup command on t1 channel at 10/17/2006 07:18:20

ORA-27040: skgfrcre: create error, unable to create file
HP-UX Error: 13: Permission denied

Can somebody help me out what is the reason for it and solution for the same?

Re: RMAN error

The erros message says:

HP-UX Error: 13: Permission denied

So, this is HP-UX in first place, anyway, it's very likely that the oracle user does not have all the required permissions to the directory /tmp/custom/.

As oracle user, ensure that you can create a file in that directory, for example, with the touch command:

touch /tmp/custom/test
Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?
