rman is trying to create the redo files in the /+FLASH.... directory that surely doesn't exist. As Joe pointed, if you plan to have your redos in filesystem, add the conversion name in the standby instance parameter file. If you wanna have the same environment, be sure to have an ASM instance in the standby host with the +FSFLASH disc group created, or use again the convert parameter to point to a valid ASM disk group

log file name convert

and for datafiles
