Looks like you're missing a close-quote after the platform. I suspect RMAN is looking for that close-quote, hitting the end of the file, not ever seeing the semi-colon as an end-of-command.

I am following several notes on migrating a database from Windows to Linux. One of the notes is 1401921.1. Database is so using transportable database option.

I have copied all of the database files from Windows to the Linux server using OS commands. The System and rollback datafiles were placed in a separate directory awaiting conversion.

I nomounted the database and started rman on the Linux server.

Now trying to convert the system and rollback datafiles only since they need conversion per the MOS notes.

I am attempting to run the following command from a file:

CONVERT datafile


FROM PLATFORM 'Microsoft Windows x86 64-bit parallelism 6;

When I run this command, I get:

RMAN> _at_rman_convert_datafile.sql

RMAN> CONVERT datafile

2> '/oracle/orat/convert/system.dbf', 
3> '/oracle/orat/convert/system_2.dbf', 
4> '/oracle/orat/convert/system_3.dbf', 
5> '/oracle/orat/convert/system_4.dbf', 
6> '/oracle/orat/convert/system_5.dbf', 
7> '/oracle/orat/convert/rollback.dbs' 
9> '/oracle/orat/convert','/oracle/orat' 
10> FROM PLATFORM 'Microsoft Windows x86 64-bit 
11> parallelism 6; 

14> **end-of-file**

RMAN is listing the file instead of executing the commands. What am I doing wrong?
