How to resolve rman: can’t open target?

Posted by Pavan DBA on June 26, 2010


Sometimes we may get “rman: can’t open target” error while trying to connect to rman.

we would be wondering because our database will be up and running and listener also when checked.

The cause to the above problem is having “/usr/X11R6/bin” in the PATH variable. If we remove that, it will work.

1) echo $PATH
2) export PATH=<specify entire path, but remove the above mentioned path>
or
3) edit .bash_profile file and enter the path without “/usr/X11R6/bin”
4) save the .bash_profile file

Now start your rman, it will start working … 🙂
