I do have a lot of experiences in MS SQL Server, but sorta new to Oracle.

I have Oracle XE on Windows 7 Enterprise. I am learning how to use RMAN to back up my database.

So, I issued rman target / and got this:

Recovery Manager: Release - Production on Tue Dec 4 07:55:14 2012

RMAN-00554: initialization of internal recovery manager package failed RMAN-04005: error from target database:
ORA-01031: insufficient privileges

I searched and found solutions on a Unix based system. But this is Windows, how do I make sure I can successfully launch rman? What do I need to do? Thank you! Received on Tue Dec 04 2012 - 14:01:33 CET
