Hi All,

When I start the RMAN in LINUX as $ rman, it should prompt out RMAN>.
But when I try to start ,its just blinking there.

My Environmental Varibales are given below
------------------------------------------
# .bash_profile

# Get the aliases and functions
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
. ~/.bashrc
fi

# User Specific environment and startup programs

PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin:/usr/java/jdk1.3.1_11/bin

export PATH
export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1
export ORACLE_BASE=/home/oracle
export ORACLE_HOME=/home/oracle/product/9.2.0
export ORACLE_SID=test
export ORACLE_TERM=xterm
export NLS_LANG=AMERICAN
export ORA_NLS33=$ORACLE_HOME/ocommon/nls/admin/data
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/lib:/lib:/usr/lib
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/lib
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export PATH=$PATH:$ORACLE_HOME/bin


I would like to get some information ragarding this.



Thanks & Regards

Hi Ana,

Should we provide Path for RMAN in environmental variables?

But Executables like SQL*PLUS,LSNRCTL are being invoked without any issues.

Only RMAN is not getting invoked!!

Any Idea?

Dear Michel,

I am not clear about your doubt!

Are you asking about the Version?

It means that you have another program named rman and you don't use Oracle one.
You have to either give full path for Oracle program or put it before X11 one in your $PATH (I don't recommend the later one).

Dear Michel,

But I think the path provided for oracle executables are correct.

export PATH=$PATH:$ORACLE_HOME/bin
This is where OS has to check for RMAN Executable,am i right?

I am not able to find this path "/usr/X11R6/bin/rman " anywhere in the bash_profile.

I am confused.

Regards

Kiran

Dear Michel,

I've just moved "/usr/X11R6/bin/rman" as root to some other folder temporarly.

Will this affect the OS in anyway?
What is this rman exactly?
Is it pretty necessary to keep in that folder?

Now as oracle user I'm able to get the rman prompt.

Anyways Thanks Alot for all the information you provided.

Have a great time,

Regards

Kiran Sathyan

1/ Maybe
2/ I don't know but I think it is connected to window interface. Did you try "man rman"?

Hi Michel,

"man rman" gives these results.

Name
PolyglotMan, rman -reverse compile man pages from formatted form to a number of source formats

The name of the binary for PolyglotMan aliase RosettaMan is rman.

Thanks & Regards

Your PATH is wrong.
your "rman" is not Oracle's "rman"
