    Rman

    I have an rman script below:

    connect rcvcat rman/jifVufs@RCATSSI
    connect target internal/internal;
    run {
    shutdown immediate;
    startup nomount;
    sql 'alter database mount';
    allocate channel d1 type 'DISK';
    backup full
    tag full_offline_backup
    format '/u01/backup1/offline_db_%d_%t_%s_%p'
    (database include current controlfile);
    release channel d1;
    sql 'alter database open';
    }

    I get the error below:

    RMAN-10035: exception raised in RPC: ORA-19554: error allocating device, device type: DISK, device name:
    ORA-27001: unsupported device type
    Additional information: 1
    RMAN-10031: ORA-19624 occurred during call to DBMS_BACKUP_RESTORE.DEVICEALLOCATE


    when I query V$backup_device

    the only entry is SBT_TAPE. I normally only backup to tape but now I want to back up to disk. what I am doing wrong?


    Thanks in advance..
