At the risk of being either totally wrong or half wrong again, did you mix up the desigantions of the 'target' and 'auxiliary' in the script? Couple of other things come to mind. If you're using 10g, make sure the db_name parameter is identical in the standby init file, the db_unique_name is the instance ID of your standby. Make sure you've deleted any previous controlfiles from the control_files locations in the init file.
