Trying to duplicate a database using rman, never had an issue before, but having problems now. I've created the standby controlfile on the primary via alter database create standby controlfile as
'/u02/backup/$SOURCE_SID/stndby_$ORACLE_SID.ctl'; and scp'd that over to
the standby, as well as a fresh full RMAN backup taken prior to the controlfile creation.

I've set my default RMAN settings on the standby to match the primary, ie 'CONFIGURE CHANNEL DEVICE TYPE DISK FORMAT
'/u02/backup/%d/%U_%I';', but I'm getting the following when trying to
run my rman script:

RMAN-03002: failure of Duplicate Db command at 07/24/2009 19:01:12
RMAN-03015: error occurred in stored script Memory Script
RMAN-06026: some targets not found - aborting restore
RMAN-06024: no backup or copy of the control file found to restore

My connect string is: rman target sys/pass_at_PRIMARY AUXILIARY /

Rman script:

run {
allocate auxiliary channel C1 device type disk; ...
allocate auxiliary channel C15 device type disk; duplicate target database for standby

I'm sure it's something trivial... I just did this exact procedure on a different box and it worked fine, what am I missing?
