I am trying to duplicate a production database - version 10.2. 0.1.0.- in a different server and I started the instance with nomount. Then I connected to rman :

RMAN> connect target /

connected to target database: NIVO (not mounted)

RMAN> connect auxiliary /




RMAN-00558: error encountered while parsing input commands RMAN-01009: syntax error: found "m": expecting one of: "allocate, alter, backup, beginline, blockrecover, catalog, change, connect, copy, convert, create, crosscheck, configure, duplicate, debug,

But when I tried to connect to auxiliary, I am getting the following error. Any idea what could cause this problem.

Thanks in advance,
