Replying to myself, sorry, it's late on a Friday J Quick metalink search shows that after creating the standby control file, you've got to switch a few logs or you'll get the error. Strange correlation if you ask me.

Subject: solaris 10 rman duplicate help  


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?
