    RMAN backup to Shared drive issue

    Hi all,

    I am on 9.2.0.6 and on Windows 2003. It's been working all along and when I am ready to implement it thing start breaking, I have an issue backing up RMAN to network shared drive. Any way below is detail of what's going on.

    I have the target database on server A and catalog on server B. I want my backup store on server B (make my job much easier if I store the backup files on the same server as target database as A server, but this is management call so I have to follow).

    I follow docs 145843.1 and again, it's been working great for me before. and all the sudden it breaks, any way, here is the copy of my script and errors:


    Code:
    RMAN > run {
    	CONFIGURE CONTROLFILE AUTOBACKUP FORMAT FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO '\\BACKUP_SERVER\RMANTEST_%F';
         	allocate channel c1 device type disk format '\\BACKUP_SERVER\RMANTEST_%U';
          	backup INCREMENTAL level=0 database plus archivelog delete input;
    	delete FORCE noprompt obsolete;
        }
    old RMAN configuration parameters:
    CONFIGURE CONTROLFILE AUTOBACKUP FORMAT FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO 'x:\RMANTEST_%F'
    ;
    new RMAN configuration parameters:
    CONFIGURE CONTROLFILE AUTOBACKUP FORMAT FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO '\\BACKUP_SERVER\RMANTEST_%F';
    new RMAN configuration parameters are successfully stored
    starting full resync of recovery catalog

    allocated channel: c1
    channel c1: sid=14 devtype=DISK

    I log in as administrator for both target and catalog server and the password is the same.

    does anyone run into this issue before so if you guys can shed some light ???

    thanks

    Cool


    The problem is not with target server or RMAN catalog, but with permissions on the backup server.
