RMAN-00572: waiting for DBMS_PIPE input
Cause: This message is used only when the PIPE option was specified.
Action: enqueue some RMAN input into the pipe
RMAN-00573: DBMS_PIPE.NEXT_ITEM_TIME returned unknown type code: number
Cause: This is an internal error.
Action: contact Oracle Customer Support.
RMAN-00574: rman aborting due to errors reading/writing DBMS_PIPE
Cause: RMAN was run with input/output being sent to DBMS_PIPE. An error was encountered while reading from or writing to the pipe. This error should be preceded by information describing the error.
Action: RMAN terminates. Refer to the cause/action for the preceding errors.
RMAN-00575: timeout while trying to write to DBMS_PIPE
Cause: d by death of the process that was talking to rman.
Action: RMAN will abort.
RMAN-00576: PIPE cannot be used with CMDFILE
Cause: The PIPE and CMDFILE options cannot be used together. When using the PIPE option, RMAN must obtain its input from the input pipe.
Action: Remove either the PIPE or CMDFILE option.
RMAN-00577: PIPE requires that TARGET be specified on the command line
Cause: The PIPE option obtains its input from, and writes its output to, an Oracle database pipe in the target database. Therefore, the target database connection must be specified on the command line, so that RMAN can connect to the target database to receive its input from the pipe.
Action: Specify the TARGET option on the RMAN command line.
RMAN-00578: pipe string is not private and owned by SYS
Cause: The pipe that RMAN needs to use for its input or output is either a public pipe or a private pipe that is not owned by SYS. This is a potential security problem, because it allows a non-SYS user to issue commands to RMAN or to retrieve the RMAN output.
Action: If you are attempting to put data on the RMAN input pipe prior to starting RMAN, so RMAN will process the data on the pipe as soon as it starts, you must be connected as SYS and you must first use the DBMS_PIPE.CREATE_PIPE function to explicitly create the pipe as a private pipe.
RMAN-00579: SCRIPT cannot be used with CMDFILE
Cause: The SCRIPT and CMDFILE options cannot be used together. When using the SCRIPT option, RMAN executes only the specified script.
Action: Remove either the SCRIPT or CMDFILE option.
RMAN-00600: internal error, arguments [string] [string] [string] [string] [string]
Cause: An internal error in recovery manager occurred.
Action: Contact Oracle Customer Support.

Cause: A syntax error was signaled during parsing.
Action: Correct the input.
RMAN-02000: wrong message file version (msg number not found)
Cause: The rmanxx.msb file is not the correct version.
Action: Check that the installation was done correctly. The RMAN binary (executable, load module, whatever it is called on your O/S) and the rmanxx.msb file must be from the same version, release, and patch level.
RMAN-02001: unrecognized punctuation symbol "string"
Cause: An illegal punctuation character was encountered.
Action: Remove the illegal character.
RMAN-02002: unexpected end of input file reached

RMAN-05013: auxiliary control file name string conflicts with a file used by the target database
Cause: RMAN is attempting to use the specified control file name for Tablespace Point-in-Time Recovery as a restore destination in the auxiliary database, but this name is already in use by the target database.
Action: Set control_files parameter in the auxiliary instance to a name that does not conflict with a file name in use by the target database.
RMAN-05014: Tablespaces with undo segments were not found in recovery catalog
Cause: The recovery catalog did not have information about tablespaces with undo segments.
Action: Manually specify the tablespaces with undo segments in the optional UNDO tablespaces clause of the RECOVER command.
RMAN-05015: WARNING: not enough information in recovery catalog for specified point in time recovery
Cause: The recovery catalog did not have information about the tablespaces with undo segments at the specified Point-in-Time. This happened because the current recovery catalog was not in use at the specified Point-in-Time. A list of tablespaces with undo segments was supplied.
Action: RMAN assumes that the current set of tablespaces with undo segments is the same set that was in use at the specified Point-in-Time. If the set of tablespaces with undo segments changes, the recovery fails. If recovery fails, use the optional UNDO TABLESPACE clause of the RECOVER command to specify the correct set of tablespaces.
RMAN-05016: failover to previous backup
Cause: This is an informational message to indicate the RMAN could not successfully restore the files using the specified backups. An attempt was made to restore the datafile/archived logs/ control file/SPFILE using a previous existing backup.

2. copy of indicated datafile exists on disk but no incremental backup was found to apply to the datafile copy.

Action: One of the following:

1. Use or correct TAG specification to recover a different datafile copy.

2. Use BACKUP FOR RECOVER OF COPY command to create necessary incremental backup or copy.

RMAN-05018: some datafile copies cannot be recovered, aborting the RECOVER command
Cause: This error message can follow one or more RMAN-5017 or RMAN-5019 error messages.
Action: See RMAN-5017 or RMAN-5019 error messages documentation for more information.
RMAN-05019: WARNING: no channel of required type allocated to recover copy of datafile number
Cause: A RECOVER COPY command could not proceed because incremental backup sets exist on a device type that has not been allocated.
Action: Use the LIST command to determine which device type is needed, then allocate a channel of that type.
RMAN-05020: cannot specify AUXILIARY DESTINATION option for normal recovery
Cause: The AUXILIARY DESTINATION option was specified for a normal recovery. It is only allowed for Tablespace Point-in-Time Recovery.
Action: Remove the AUXILIARY DESTINATION option and re-run the RECOVER command.
RMAN-05021: this configuration cannot be changed for a BACKUP or STANDBY control file
Cause: The user attempted to modify the configuration which cannot be changed for a BACKUP or STANDBY control file while the mounted control file was either BACKUP or STANDBY.

Cause: Accompanying message to 5015.
Action: See action of message 5015.
RMAN-05026: WARNING: presuming following set of tablespaces applies to specified point in time
Cause: RMAN assumes that the current set of tablespaces with undo segments is the same set that was in use at the specified Point-in-Time. If the set of tablespaces with undo segments changes, the recovery fails. If recovery fails, use the optional UNDO TABLESPACE clause of the RECOVER command to specify the correct set of tablespaces.
Action: RMAN assumes that the current set of tablespaces with undo segments is the same set that was in use at the specified Point-in-Time. If the set of tablespaces with undo segments changes, the recovery fails. If recovery fails, use the optional UNDO TABLESPACE clause of the RECOVER command to specify the correct set of tablespaces.
RMAN-05027: List of tablespaces expected to have UNDO segments
Cause: Accompanying message to 5026.
Action: See action of message 5026.
RMAN-05028: Tablespace string

RMAN-05061: analyzing automatic repair options complete
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-05062: image copy needs no roll forward
Cause: The image copy that would be rolled forward by the RECOVER COPY command is already more recent than the specified UNTIL time or SCN.
Action: Usually this is the result of a recent OPEN RESETLOGS operation, and no action is needed, because the daily backup strategy will start rolling this copy forward after it becomes old enough to be eligible for rolling forward. To force the copy to be rolled forward, specify a more recent UNTIL time or SCN.
RMAN-05500: the auxiliary database must be not mounted when issuing a DUPLICATE command
Cause: A DUPLICATE command was issued, but the auxiliary database is mounted.
Action: Dismount the auxiliary database.
RMAN-05501: aborting duplication of target database
Cause: Previously encountered errors require corrective action.

RMAN-05516: duplicate operand specified: string
Cause: The specified operand appears more than once in the same DUPLICATE option list
Action: Delete the duplicated operand.
RMAN-05517: tempfile string conflicts with file used by target database
Cause: RMAN attempted to use the specified tempfile as a restore destination in the auxiliary database, but this name was already in use by the target database.
Action: Use the SET NEWNAME FOR TEMPFILE command to specify a name for the indicated tempfile, making sure that the new name does not conflict with a file name in use by target database. Alternatively, use DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT and retry the command.
RMAN-05518: Automatically adding tablespace string
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-05519: WARNING: tablespace string is always included when duplicating
Cause: The SYSTEM and SYSAUX tablespaces were included in the DUPLICATE TABLESPACE command. They were automatically included by the command and did not need to be explicitly named.
Action: To avoid this warning,, remove the SYSTEM and/or SYSAUX tablespace from the tablespaces list and retry the operation.
RMAN-05520: database name mismatch, auxiliary instance has string, command specified string
Cause: The database name specified in the initialization parameter was not the same as the database name provided in the DUPLICATE command.
Action: Correct the database name in the command or adjust the database name of the auxiliary instance.
RMAN-05521: WARNING: No undo tablespaces found. Will proceed assuming that list contains all necessary undo tablespaces.
Cause: No information was found about tablespaces with undo segments
Action: If TABLESPACE clause does not contain all tablespaces with undo segments, duplication might fail to open the database.
RMAN-05522: Skipping tablespace string
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-05523: Tablespace string is read only and SKIP READONLY was specified
Cause: Conflicting parameters were provided.
Action: Remove SKIP READONLY or remove read-only tablespace from list of tablespaces to duplicate.
RMAN-05524: Tablespace string is offline
Cause: It was not possible to duplicate offline tablespaces.
Action: Remove offline tablespace from list or online tablespace to duplicate it.
RMAN-05525: SKIP TABLESPACE cannot be used when using DUPLICATE TABLESPACE
Cause: A SKIP TABLESPACE clause was specified for the command.
Action: Remove the SKIP TABLESPACE clause and try again.
RMAN-05526: datafile number not processed because file is OFFLINE IMMEDIATE
Cause: A DUPLICATE command omitted processing the indicated datafile because it is offline immediate. The tablespace to which this datafile belongs will also not be included. See message 5528.
Action: None, informational message only.
RMAN-05527: Tablespace string has one or more OFFLINE IMMEDIATE datafiles
Cause: It was not possible to duplicate a tablespace who had offline immediate tablespaces.
Action: Remove offending tablespace from list or recover datafile which are offline immediate in the tablespace before attempting the command again.
RMAN-05528: datafile number not processed because file belongs to tablespace with one or more offline immediate datafile (string)
Cause: A DUPLICATE command omitted processing the indicated datafile because it is part of a tablespace that has offline immediate datafile. See message 5526.
Action: No action is required. This is an informational message only.
RMAN-05529: WARNING: DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT resulted in invalid ASM names; names changed to disk group only.
Cause: It was not possible to convert ASM Oracle Managed Files names using DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT parameter. RMAN changed these invalid names to the converted disk group name instead.
Action: No action is required. This is an informational message only. If the automatic change is incorrect, use one of the following options instead of using DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT for ASM Oracle Managed Files: 1) use RMAN command SET NEWNAME for each Oracle Managed File. 2) set DB_CREATE_FILE_DEST initialization parameter in auxiliary instance and not specify DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT.
RMAN-05530: an UNTIL TIME or SCN cannot be specified with FROM ACTIVE DATABASE
Cause: A DUPLICATE with FROM ACTIVE DATABASE was specified along with either a SET UNTIL statment or UNTIL clause on the command. This is not supported. A DUPLICATE FROM ACTIVE DATABASE always creates a copy as of the current time.
Action: Check the statement and remove the use of UNTIL.
RMAN-05531: a mounted database cannot be duplicated while data files are fuzzy
Cause: A DUPLICATE with FROM ACTIVE DATABASE command was specified while the database was mounted or open read-only. Unless the database is open read/write, the data files cannot be fuzzy.
Action: Open the database read/write, then shutdown cleanly before mounting.
RMAN-05532: PASSWORD FILE specified without FROM ACTIVE DATABASE
Cause: The PASSWORD FILE clause of the DUPLICATE command was specified but the FROM ACTIVE DATABASE clause was not. A password file can only be duplicated if the FROM ACTIVE DATABSE clause has been used.
Action: Remove the PASSWORD FILE clause from the command, or perform an online duplicate of the database by specifying the FROM ACTIVE DATABASE clause.
RMAN-05533: string is not supported on string database
Cause: The specified command is not supported on this type of database. The type of database can be STANDBY, CLONE, or RAC.
Action: Do not use the specified command against this database.
RMAN-05534: WARNING: LOG_FILE_NAME_CONVERT resulted in invalid ASM names; names changed to disk group only.
Cause: It was not possible to convert ASM Oracle Managed Files names using LOG_FILE_NAME_CONVERT parameter. RMAN changed these invalid names to the converted disk group name instead.
Action: If the automatic change is incorrect, use one of the following options instead of using LOG_FILE_NAME_CONVERT for ASM Oracle Managed Files: 1) Use the LOGFILE clause for online log files. 2) After DUPLICATE completes, create standby log files using the SQL ALTER DATABASE ADD STANDBY LOGFILE command.
RMAN-05535: WARNING: All standby logfiles were not created
Cause: It was not possible to convert and create new standby logfiles.
Action: If standby logfiles are desired, create them after DUPLICATE has completed using the ALTER DATABASE ADD STANDBY LOGFILE SQL command.
RMAN-05536: auxiliary logfile name string conflicts with a file used by the target database
Cause: RMAN attempted to use the specified logfile name as a standby redo log file in the auxiliary database, but this name was already in use by the target database.
Action: Use or alter LOG_FILE_NAME_CONVERT so that unique logfile names can be generated. Or wait for the command to complete and create standby logfiles using the SQL ALTER DATABASE ADD STANDBY LOGFILE command.
RMAN-06000: could not open recovery manager library file: string
Cause: The "recover.bsq" file could not be opened.
Action: Check that the file was installed correctly and that the user running RMAN has authority to read the file.

Cause: This message should be accompanied by other error message(s) indicating the cause of the error.
Action: Check the accompanying errors.
RMAN-06005: connected to target database: string (DBID=string)
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06006: connected to target database: string (not mounted)
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06007: target database not mounted and db_name not set in init.ora
Cause: The target database has not mounted the control file, and its "init.ora" file does not specify the DB_NAME parameter.
Action: MOUNT the target database, or add the DB_NAME parameter to its "init.ora" and restart the instance.
RMAN-06008: connected to recovery catalog database
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06009: using target database control file instead of recovery catalog
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06010: error while looking up datafile: string
Cause: An error occurred while looking up the specified datafile in the recovery catalog or target database control file.
Action: This error is accompanied by other errors describing the reason for the failure. Ensure that the file name is entered correctly. If the datafile was added recently, then a RESYNC CATALOG must be done to update the recovery catalog.
RMAN-06011: invalid level specified: number
Cause: An invalid incremental backup level was specified.
Action: Incremental backup level must be between 0 and 4.
RMAN-06012: channel: string not allocated
Cause: A RELEASE or SETLIMIT command was found for a channel identifier that was not yet allocated.
Action: Correct the channel identifier, or add an ALLOCATE CHANNEL command.
RMAN-06013: duplicate channel identifier found: string
Cause: A channel identifier was reused without first releasing the channel.
Action: Add a RELEASE CHANNEL command.
RMAN-06014: command not implemented yet: string
Cause: Not all commands are implemented for the beta release.
Action: Avoid using the command.
RMAN-06015: error while looking up datafile copy name: string
Cause: An error occurred while looking up the specified datafile copy name in the recovery catalog or target database control file.
Action: This error is accompanied by other errors describing the reason for the failure. Ensure that the file name is entered correctly. If the datafile copy was created when the recovery catalog was not available, then a RESYNC CATALOG must be done to update the recovery catalog.
RMAN-06016: duplicate backup operand specified: string
Cause: The specified operand appears more than once in the same backup specifier or backup command.
Action: Delete the duplicated operand.
RMAN-06017: initialization of parser failed
Cause: The parser package initialization routine returned an error.
Action: This message should be accompanied by other error message(s) indicating the cause of the error.
RMAN-06018: duplicate operand specified in backup specification: string
Cause: A backup specification operand appears more than once in a backup specification.
Action: Delete the duplicate operand.
RMAN-06019: could not translate tablespace name "string"
Cause: An error occurred while looking up the specified tablespace name in the recovery catalog or target database control file.
Action: This error is accompanied by other errors describing the reason for the failure. Ensure that the tablespace is entered correctly. If the tablespace was added recently, then a RESYNC CATALOG must be done to update the recovery catalog.
RMAN-06020: connected to auxiliary database (not started)
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06021: FROM DATAFILECOPY/BACKUPSET may not be specified with archived logs
Cause: The FROM DATAFILECOPY/BACKUPSET option applies only to datafile and control file restores.
Action: Use this option only for datafile and control file restores.
RMAN-06022: invalid level specified for image copy: number
Cause: An invalid incremental backup level was specified for an image copy.
Action: Incremental backup level must be 0 for image copies.
RMAN-06023: no backup or copy of datafile number found to restore
Cause: A datafile, tablespace, or database restore could not proceed because no backup or copy of the indicated file was found. It may be the case that a backup or copy of this file exists but does not satisfy the criteria specified in the user's restore operands.
Action: None - this is an informational message. See message 6026 for further details.
RMAN-06024: no backup or copy of the control file found to restore
Cause: A control file restore could not proceed because no backup or copy of the control file was found. It may be the case that a backup or copy of this file exists but does not satisfy the criteria specified in the user's restore operands.
Action: None - this is an informational message. See message 6026 for further details.
RMAN-06025: no backup of archived log for thread number with sequence number and starting SCN of string found to restore
Cause: An archived log restore restore could not proceed because no backup of the indicated archived log was found. It may be the case that a backup of this file exists but does not satisfy the criteria specified in the user's restore operands.
Action: None - this is an informational message. See message 6026 for further details.
RMAN-06026: some targets not found - aborting restore
Cause: Some of the files specified for restore could not be found. Message 6023, 6024, or 6025 is also issued to indicate which files could not be found. Some common reasons why a file can not be restored are that there is no backup or copy of the file that is known to recovery manager, or there are no backups or copies that fall within the criteria specified on the RESTORE command, or some datafile copies have been made but not cataloged.
Action: The Recovery Manager LIST command can be used to display the backups and copies that Recovery Manager knows about. Select the files to be restored from that list.
RMAN-06027: no archived logs found that match specification
Cause: An archived log record specifier did not match any archived logs in the recovery catalog.
Action: Resubmit the command with a different archived log record specifier. The rman LIST command can be used to display all archived logs that Recovery Manager knows about.
RMAN-06028: duplicate operand specified in restore specification: string
Cause: The CHANNEL, TAG, FROM, PARMS, VALIDATE, DEVICE TYPE, CHECK READONLY or DB_UNIQUE_NAME option was specified more than once in the restore command or in one of the restore specifications.
Action: Correct and resubmit the command.
RMAN-06029: the control file may be included only in a datafile backup set
Cause: The "include current/standby control file" option was specified for an archived log backup set.
Action: Use this option only for datafile backup sets.
RMAN-06030: the DELETE [ALL] INPUT option may not be used with a datafile backup set
Cause: The DELETE [ALL] INPUT option was specified for a backup that contains the current control file or datafile.
Action: Remove the option and resubmit the command.
RMAN-06031: could not translate database keyword
Cause: An error was received when calling DBMS_RCVMAN
Action: This message should be accompanied by other error message(s) indicating the cause of the error.
RMAN-06032: at least 1 channel of TYPE DISK must be allocated to execute a COPY command
Cause: No channel of TYPE DISK was allocated.
Action: Allocate a channel of TYPE DISK and re-issue the command.
RMAN-06033: channel string not allocated
Cause: An rman command requests a specific channel, but the requested channel has not been allocated.
Action: ALLOCATE the channel, or correct the channel identifier.
RMAN-06034: at least 1 channel must be allocated to execute this command
Cause: No channels were allocated.
Action: ALLOCATE a channel.
RMAN-06035: wrong version of recover.bsq, expecting string, found string
Cause: The "recover.bsq" file is incompatible with the RMAN executable.
Action: Install the correct version of recover.bsq.
RMAN-06036: datafile number is already restored to file string
Cause: A SET NEWNAME command was issued to restore a datafile to a location other than the original datafile, and Recovery Manager determined that the best candidate for restoring the file is the datafile copy with the same name, therefore the file is already restored and no action need be taken.
Action: None - this is an informational message.
RMAN-06038: recovery catalog package detected an error
Cause: A call to DBMS_RCVMAN returned an error.
Action: This message should be accompanied by other error message(s) indicating the cause of the error.
RMAN-06039: SET NEWNAME command has not been issued for datafile string
Cause: A SWITCH command was specified for a datafile, but no destination was specified and no SET NEWNAME command has been previously issued for that file. An explicit file to switch to must be specified if no SET NEWNAME command has been issued.
Action: Correct and resubmit the SWITCH command.
RMAN-06040: control file is already restored to file string
Cause: The best candidate control file for restoration is the one that is named in the RESTORE CONTROLFILE command, hence no action need be taken.
Action: None - this is an informational message.
RMAN-06041: cannot switch file number to copy of file number
Cause: An attempt was made to switch a datafile to a copy of a different datafile.
Action: Correct and resubmit the SWITCH command.
RMAN-06042: PLUS ARCHIVELOG option is not supported with non-datafile backups
Cause: The PLUS ARCHIVELOG option was supplied but does not apply to this type of backup.

RMAN-06045: LEVEL option not supported for archived log or current/standby control file copies
Cause: The LEVEL option was supplied but does not apply to this type of copy.
Action: Remove the LEVEL operand and re-enter the command.
RMAN-06046: archived log name: string
Cause: An error occurred while translating an archived log name to its recovery catalog RECID/time stamp. This message should be accompanied by other error message(s) indicating the cause of the error.
Action: Check the accompanying errors.
RMAN-06047: duplicate datafile number specified for restoration from copy
Cause: The indicated datafile was specified more than once in the same restore command.
Action: Correct and resubmit the RESTORE command.
RMAN-06048: duplicate control file specified for restoration from copy
Cause: The control file was specified more than once in the same RESTORE command.
Action: Correct and resubmit the RESTORE command.
RMAN-06049: CHECK LOGICAL option not supported for archived log or current/standby control file copies
Cause: The check logical option was supplied but does not apply to this type of copy.
Action: Remove the CHECK LOGICAL operand and re-enter the command
RMAN-06050: archived log for thread number with sequence number is already on disk as file string
Cause: An archived log which was requested to be restored (either explicitly or via a range specification) does not need to be restored because it already exists on disk.
Action: None - this is an informational message
RMAN-06051: DELETE INPUT option not implemented yet
Cause: This option was specified in a backup specification.
Action: Remove the DELETE INPUT option.
RMAN-06052: no parent backup or copy of datafile number found
Cause: An incremental backup at level 1 or higher could not find any parent backup or copy of the indicated datafile. A level 0 backup of the datafile will be taken automatically.
Action: This is an informational message only.
RMAN-06053: unable to perform media recovery because of missing log
Cause: This message is accompanied with another message identifying the missing log. The log would be needed to perform the media recovery, but the log is not on disk and no backup set containing the log is available.
Action: Determine if a backup set containing the log can be made available. If so, then use the CHANGE command to make the backup set available and retry the command. If not, then a point in time recovery up to the missing log is the only alternative.
RMAN-06054: media recovery requesting unknown archived log for thread string with sequence string and starting SCN of string
Cause: Media recovery is requesting a log whose existence is not recorded in the recovery catalog or control file.
Action: If a copy of the log is available, then add it to the recovery catalog and/or control file via a CATALOG command and then retry the RECOVER command. If not, then a point in time recovery up to the missing log is the only alternative and database can be opened using ALTER DATABASE OPEN RESETLOGS command.
RMAN-06055: could not find archived log with sequence string for thread string
Cause: A log which was on disk at the start of media recovery or which should have been restored from a backup set could not be found.
Action: Check the Recovery Manager message log to see if the log was restored by a previous job step. If so, then check the V$ARCHIVED_LOG view to see if the log is listed in the control file. If so, then validate that the log exists on disk and is readable. If the log was not restored, or was restored but no record of the log exists in V$ARCHIVED_LOG, then contact Oracle Customer Support.
RMAN-06056: could not access datafile number
Cause: A backup or copy could not proceed because the datafile header could not be read or the header was not valid.
Action: Make the datafile accessible or skip it.
RMAN-06057: a standby control file cannot be included along with a current control file
Cause: "current control file" was specified along with "standby control file".
Action: Remove "current control file" or "standby control file" from backup specification.
RMAN-06058: a current control file cannot be included along with a standby control file
Cause: "standby control file" was specified along with "current control file".
Action: Remove "standby control file" or "current control file" from backup specification.
RMAN-06059: expected archived log not found, lost of archived log compromises recoverability
Cause: The archived log was not found. The repository thinks it does exist. If the archived log has in fact been lost and there is no backup, then the database is no longer recoverable across the point in time covered by the archived log. This may occur because the archived log was removed by an outside utility without updating the repository.
Action: If the archived log has been removed with an outside utility and the archived log has already been backed up, then you can synchronize the repository by running CROSSCHECK ARCHIVELOG ALL. If the archived log has not been previously backed up, then you should take a full backup of the database and archived logs to preserve recoverability. Previous backups are not fully recoverable.
RMAN-06060: WARNING: skipping datafile compromises tablespace string recoverability
Cause: SKIP INACCESSIBLE or SKIP OFFLINE option resulted in skipping datafile during BACKUP. If the datafile has in fact been lost and there is no backup, then the tablespace is no longer recoverable without ALL archived logs since datafile creation. This may occur because the datafile was deleted by an outside utility or the datafile is made OFFLINE [DROP].
Action: If there is no backup of skipped datafile and the tablespace has to be recoverable without ALL archived logs since datafile creation, then you should make these datafile available for backup.
RMAN-06061: WARNING: skipping archived log compromises recoverability
Cause: SKIP INACCESSIBLE option resulted in skipping archived logs during BACKUP. If the archived log has in fact been lost and there is no backup, then the database is no longer recoverable across the point in time covered by the archived log. This may occur because archived log was removed by an outside utility without updating the repository.
Action: If the archived log has been removed with an outside utility and the archived log has already been backed up, then you can synchronize the repository by running CROSSCHECK ARCHIVELOG ALL. If the archived log has not been previously backed up, then you should take a full backup of the database and archived logs to preserve recoverability. Previous backups are not fully recoverable.
RMAN-06062: can not backup SPFILE because the instance was not started with SPFILE
Cause: A backup command requested a backup of the SPFILE, but no SPFILE was used to startup the instance.
Action: Create an SPFILE and re-start the instance using the SPFILE or modify the command.
RMAN-06063: DBID is not found in the recovery catalog
Cause: DBID is not found in the recovery catalog.
Action: Verify that the DBID is correct and restart the command.
RMAN-06064: creating datafile file number=string name=string
Cause: RESTORE/RECOVER command was issued and there were no backup available for the datafile.
Action: This is an informational message only.
RMAN-06065: The backup operand [string] conflicts with another specified operand.
Cause: The user attempted to use two (or more) conflicting operands within the same statement.
Action: Remove one or both of the conflicting operands.
RMAN-06066: the target database must be mounted when issuing a RECOVER command
Cause: A RECOVER command was issued, but the target database control file is not mounted.
Action: Mount the target database control file by issuing ALTER DATABASE MOUNT via Enterprise Manager or Server Manager.
RMAN-06067: RECOVER DATABASE required with a backup or created control file
Cause: The control file has been restored from a backup or was created via ALTER DATABASE CREATE CONTROLFILE.
Action: Use the RECOVER DATABASE command to perform the recovery.
RMAN-06068: recovery aborted because of missing datafiles
Cause: This error should be accompanied by one or more instances of message ORA-06094.
Action: Refer to message ORA-06094.
RMAN-06069: the file name for datafile string is missing in the control file
Cause: Media recovery of a backup control file added this datafile to the control file, but it does not set the file name because that is unsafe.
Action: If the datafile is on disk, then issue ALTER DATABASE RENAME to correct the control file. Otherwise, RESTORE the datafile, and then use SWITCH to make it known to the control file. If the tablespace containing this datafile will be dropped, then reissue the RECOVER command with a SKIP clause to skip recovery of this tablespace.
RMAN-06070: DBWR could not identify datafile string
Cause: DBWR could not find the specified datafile.
Action: Ensure that the datafile exists and is accessible.
RMAN-06071: could not open datafile string
Cause: An error was encountered when trying to open the specified datafile.
Action: Ensure that the datafile exists and is accessible.
RMAN-06073: file header is corrupt for datafile string
Cause: ORACLE detected a corruption in the file header. A media failure has probably occurred.
Action: RESTORE the datafile to a new location, then do a SWITCH, and then retry the RECOVER command.
RMAN-06074: file string is not an ORACLE datafile
Cause: The file header indicates that this file is not a datafile. The file may have been overlaid or corrupted.
Action: RESTORE the datafile to a new location, then do a SWITCH, and then retry the RECOVER command.
RMAN-06075: datafile string does not belong to this database
Cause: The file header indicates that this file belongs to some other ORACLE database.
Action: RESTORE the datafile to a new location, then do a SWITCH, and then retry the RECOVER command.
RMAN-06076: datafile string contains wrong datafile
Cause: The datafile header indicates the file contains a different datafile number.
Action: RESTORE the datafile, and then retry the RECOVER command.
RMAN-06077: datafile string is a different version than contained in the control file
Cause: The control file entry for this datafile specifies a different version of this datafile. Different versions of a datafile can exist when a tablespace is dropped, and a new tablespace is created which reuses the same datafile numbers.
Action: If the datafile is correct, the fix the control file by using the SWITCH command. Otherwise, RESTORE the correct version of this datafile and retry the RECOVER command.
RMAN-06078: the control file is older than datafile string
Cause: The control file appears to be older than the specified datafile, but it is not marked as a backup control file. This indicates that the control file has been replaced with an older version. This error does not occur when a backup control file which was created via Recovery Manager or the ALTER DATABASE BACKUP CONTROLFILE command is restored because such control files are marked as backups.
Action: RESTORE a control file and perform RECOVER DATABASE.
RMAN-06079: database must be mounted to perform recovery
Cause: A RECOVER command was issued, but the target database is not mounted.
Action: Issue ALTER DATABASE MOUNT.
RMAN-06080: SWITCH required for datafile string
Cause: The control file record for this datafile is for an older incarnation of the datafile. A SWITCH command must be issued to updated the control file before doing RECOVER.
Action: Issue SWITCH command then retry RECOVER.
RMAN-06081: error reading datafile header for datafile string, code string
Cause: X$KCVFH returned the specified code in the HXERR column when it was queried for the specified datafile.
Action: Ensure the datafile exists and is readable. Using a newer release of Recovery Manager may return a more meaningful error message. If you have no newer version of Recovery Manager, contact Oracle Customer Support.
RMAN-06082: datafile copy tag string is ambiguous
Cause: The specified tag refers to multiple datafile copies belonging to different datafiles.
Action: Specify the datafile copy by file name rather than by tag.
RMAN-06083: error when loading stored script string
Cause: The recovery catalog database returned an error. This error explains the cause of the problem.
Action: Correct the problem and retry.
RMAN-06084: the target database may not be mounted when issuing REPLICATE
Cause: A REPLICATE command was issued, but the target database is already mounted.
Action: dismount the target database control file by issuing ALTER DATABASE CLOSE and ALTER DATABASE DISMOUNT via Enterprise Manager or Server Manager.
RMAN-06085: must use SET NEWNAME command to restore datafile string
Cause: A RESTORE command for the specified datafile could not find a destination name for the specified datafile.
Action: Add a SET NEWNAME command prior to the RESTORE command to specify the restore destination for this file.
RMAN-06086: offline files may only be skipped in a datafile backup set
Cause: The SKIP OFFLINE option was specified for an archived log backup set.
Action: Use this option only for datafile backup sets.
RMAN-06087: read-only files may only be skipped in a datafile backup set
Cause: The SKIP READONLY option was specified for an archived log backup set.
Action: Use this option only for datafile backup sets.
RMAN-06088: datafile copy string not found or out of sync with catalog
Cause: The indicated file is not found, or is found but is not the same file that the recovery catalog thinks it is. It is likely that some operation outside of Recovery Manager has altered the file, or that Recovery Manager has not resynced with the target database.
Action: Re-catalog the file and retry the operation.
RMAN-06089: archived log string not found or out of sync with catalog
Cause: The indicated file is not found, or is found but is not the same file that the recovery catalog thinks it is. It is likely that some operation outside of Recovery Manager has altered the file, or that Recovery Manager has not resynced with the target database.
Action: Re-catalog the file and retry the operation.
RMAN-06090: error while looking up control file copy: string
Cause: An error occurred while looking up the specified control file copy in the recovery catalog or target database control file.
Action: This error is accompanied by other errors describing the reason for the failure. Ensure that the file name is entered correctly. If the control file copy was created when the recovery catalog was not available, then a RESYNC CATALOG must be done to update the recovery catalog.
RMAN-06091: no channel allocated for maintenance (of an appropriate type)
Cause: A command was entered that requires a maintenance channel, and no maintenance channel is allocated, or none of the appropriate type.
Action: Use ALLOCATE CHANNEL FOR MAINTENANCE before deleting backup pieces, or using the CROSSCHECK or DELETE EXPIRED commands. Proxy copies require a non-DISK channel.
RMAN-06092: error while looking up backup piece
Cause: An error occurred while looking up the specified backup piece in the recovery catalog or target database control file.
Action: This error is accompanied by other errors describing the reason for the failure. Ensure that the name or key is entered correctly. If the backup piece was created when the recovery catalog was not available, then a RESYNC CATALOG must be done to update the recovery catalog.
RMAN-06093: recovery catalog contains obsolete version of datafile string
Cause: The specified datafile number was dropped and then reused. The control file mounted by the target database contains the newer version of the datafile, but the recovery catalog contains information about only the older version.
Action: Issue a RESYNC command to update the recovery catalog, then reissue the failing command. If the error persists, contact Oracle Customer Support.
RMAN-06094: datafile string must be restored
Cause: A RECOVER command was issued, and the recovery catalog indicates the specified datafile should be part of the recovery, but this datafile is not listed in the control file, and cannot be found on disk.
Action: Issue a RESTORE command for this datafile, using the same UNTIL clause specified to the RECOVER command (if any), then reissue the RECOVER.
RMAN-06095: a backup control file must be restored to recover datafile string
Cause: The control file currently mounted by the target database contains a newer incarnation of the datafile than the recovery catalog indicates is appropriate for the Point-in-Time being recovered to.
Action: Restore the control file, using the same UNTIL clause specified on the failing RECOVER command, then reissue the command. If no control file can be restored, then you should issue a CREATE CONTROLFILE command.
RMAN-06096: SWITCH required for newname of datafile string to take effect
Cause: A SET NEWNAME was issued for this datafile, but no SWITCH command was issued before the RECOVER command.
Action: Issue a SWITCH command to make the newname take effect before doing RECOVER.
RMAN-06098: the target database must be mounted when issuing a BACKUP command
Cause: A BACKUP command was issued, but the target database control file is not mounted.
Action: Mount the target database control file by issuing ALTER DATABASE MOUNT via Enterprise Manager or Server Manager.
RMAN-06099: error occurred in source file: string, line: number
Cause: See accompanying error.
Action: See accompanying error.
RMAN-06100: no channel to restore a backup or copy of datafile number
Cause: A datafile, tablespace, or database restore could not proceed because the backup of the indicated file exists on a device type that was not allocated for restore.
Action: None - this is an informational message. See message 6026 for further details.
RMAN-06101: no channel to restore a backup or copy of the control file
Cause: A control file restore could not proceed because the backup of the indicated file exists on a device type that was not allocated for restore.
Action: None - this is an informational message. See message 6026 for further details.
RMAN-06102: no channel to restore a backup or copy of archived log for thread number with sequence number and starting SCN of string
Cause: An archived log restore restore could not proceed because the backup of the indicated file exists on a device type that was not allocated for restore.
Action: None - this is an informational message. See message 6026 for further details.
RMAN-06103: duplicate qualifier found in REPORT command: string
Cause: The indicated qualifier appears more than once in a REPORT qualifier list.
Action: delete the duplicate qualifier
RMAN-06105: duplicate qualifier found in LIST command: string
Cause: The indicated qualifier appears more than once in a LIST qualifier list.
Action: delete the duplicate qualifier
RMAN-06106: this command requires that target database be mounted
Cause: A command was issued that requires the target database to be mounted, but the target database is not mounted.
Action: Mount the target database control file by issuing ALTER DATABASE MOUNT via Enterprise Manager or Server Manager.
RMAN-06107: WARNING: control file is not current for REPORT NEED BACKUP DAYS
Cause: The REPORT NEED BACKUP DAYS command may report some files as requiring backups when they really do not, because the most current online status of the file is not known unless a current control file is mounted.
Action: No action is required, however, a current control file should be mounted, if possible, to get the most accurate REPORT output.
RMAN-06108: changed datafile copy unavailable
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06109: changed archived log unavailable
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06110: changed control file copy unavailable
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06111: changed backup piece unavailable
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06112: changed datafile copy available
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06113: changed archived log available
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06114: changed control file copy available
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06115: changed backup piece available
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06116: cannot crosscheck unavailable object
Cause: An attempt was made to crosscheck an object which is unavailable.
Action: Make object available and try again or don't crosscheck object.
RMAN-06117: cannot do DELETE EXPIRED on an object which is not expired
Cause: An attempt was made to DELETE EXPIRED an object which is not expired.
Action: Remove EXPIRED keyword, crosscheck object, or don't delete object.
RMAN-06118: a backup control file older than SCN string must be used for this recovery
Cause: An attempt was made to recover the database, but some files had no backup, and were not present in the control file at the beginning of the restore. This happens when the control file used during the recovery is a backup control file taken before the creation of some of the files that had no backup. In this situation, the control file that is used must be taken before the creation of all files that have no backup. This will enable RMAN to automatically re-create all of the files that had no backup.
Action: Restore a control file that was backed up before the specified SCN. The following RMAN commands can be used to do this: SET UNTIL SCN <x>; (where <x> is the SCN displayed in the message) RESTORE CONTROLFILE;
RMAN-06119: uncataloged datafile copy
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06120: uncataloged archived log
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06121: uncataloged control file copy
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06122: CHANGE .. UNCATALOG not supported for BACKUPSET
Cause: The CHANGE BACKUPSET .. UNCATALOG command was entered. The UNCATALOG operation is not supported with backup set.
Action: Use CHANGE BACKUPSET .. DELETE instead.
RMAN-06123: operation not supported without the recovery catalog or mounted control file
Cause: A command was used which requires a connection to a recovery catalog database or the target database to be mounted. The command cannot be used when no backup repository is available.
Action: If a recovery catalog database is available, then connect to the recovery catalog and retry the command, otherwise enter a different command.
RMAN-06124: error while looking up datafile copy key: number
Cause: An error occurred while looking up the specified datafile copy key in the recovery catalog.
Action: This error is accompanied by other errors describing the reason for the failure.
RMAN-06125: error while looking up archived log key: number
Cause: An error occurred while looking up the specified archived log key in the recovery catalog.
Action: This error is accompanied by other errors describing the reason for the failure.
RMAN-06126: skipping offline file string
Cause: The indicated file will not be included in the backup set because it is offline and the SKIP OFFLINE option was specified.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06127: skipping read-only file string
Cause: The indicated file will not be included in the backup set because it is read only and the SKIP READONLY option was specified.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06128: skipping inaccessible file string
Cause: The indicated file will not be included in the backup set because it could not be read, and the SKIP INACCESSIBLE option was specified.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06129: invalid reserved channel ID: string
Cause: The specified channel id is invalid. DELETE and DEFAULT are reserved channel names and may not be specified by users.
Action: Specify a different channel ID.
RMAN-06131: SKIP OFFLINE/READONLY only allowed with current control file
Cause: The SKIP OFFLINE and SKIP READONLY options are only permitted when the target database control file is current. When the target control file is not current, it is not possible to obtain a datafile's offline/read only status.
Action: Remove the skip option or mount a current control file on the target database.
RMAN-06132: cannot backup datafile string because it is not in the control file
Cause: A backup command was issued that includes the specified datafile, but the datafile is not listed in the control file. The control file is not current (it is a backup or a created control file).
Action: Recover the control file to make it current, then retry the backup command.
RMAN-06133: recovery catalog may have obsolete data for datafile string
Cause: A RESTORE UNTIL was issued, and the recovery catalog choose an older incarnation of the datafile than is listed in the control file.
Action: If the recovery catalog has correct data for the datafile, then restore a backup control file using the same UNTIL clause, then retry the datafile restore. Otherwise, restore a backup of the incarnation of the datafile listed in the control file.
RMAN-06134: host command complete
Cause: An operating system command has completed.
Action: None - this is an informational message.
RMAN-06135: error executing host command: string
Cause: A host command returned a non-zero return code.
Action: Correct the offending command.
RMAN-06136: ORACLE error from auxiliary database: string
Cause: This message should be accompanied by other error message(s) indicating the cause of the error.
Action: Check the accompanying errors.
RMAN-06137: must have recovery catalog for REPORT SCHEMA AT TIME
Cause: A 'REPORT SCHEMA at_clause' command was issued, but there is no recovery catalog database.
Action: If you are not using a recovery catalog, then you may only issue the 'REPORT SCHEMA' command with no at_clause.
RMAN-06138: control file not mounted - must specify AT clause with REPORT command
Cause: A 'REPORT SCHEMA' with no at_clause was issued, and there is no recovery catalog, and there is also no control file mounted at the target database, so there is no place to get the information about the current list of files comprising the database.
Action: Use a recovery catalog or mount a control file at the target database.
RMAN-06139: WARNING: control file is not current for REPORT SCHEMA
Cause: A 'REPORT SCHEMA' with no at_clause was issued, and there is no recovery catalog, and the control file mounted by the target instance is not current, so the information about the current list of datafiles may not be current.
Action: Use a recovery catalog or mount a current control file.
RMAN-06140: cannot specify TAG option with LIST INCARNATION
Cause: The TAG option was specified with LIST INCARNATION. This is not permitted because there is no TAG associated with a database incarnation.
Action: Remove the TAG option and re-run the LIST command.
RMAN-06141: cannot specify ARCHIVELOG LIKE option with RESTORE
Cause: The ARCHIVELOG LIKE option was specified with RESTORE. This is not permitted because recovery catalog contains only those records that are not deleted from disk.
Action: Remove the ARCHIVELOG LIKE option and re-run the command.
RMAN-06142: DEVICE TYPE cannot be specified with this command
Cause: The DEVICE TYPE option was specified with a command that does not support it.
Action: Remove the DEVICE TYPE option and re-run the command.
RMAN-06143: LIKE may only be specified with COPY
Cause: The LIKE option was specified with a RMAN command. This is not permitted because only copies of datafiles, control files or archived logs have file names that may be tested with a LIKE operand.
Action: Remove the LIKE option and re-run the RMAN command.
RMAN-06144: FROM or UNTIL may not be specified with LIST INCARNATION
Cause: The FROM or UNTIL option was specified with LIST INCARNATION. This is not permitted because there is no time associated with a database incarnation.
Action: Remove the FROM or UNTIL option and re-run the LIST command.
RMAN-06145: control file is not current - obsolete file list may be incomplete
Cause: A CHANGE or REPORT command needs to compute the list of backups that are redundant and may be deleted. If the mounted control file is not current, it may not be possible to determine if a satisfactory backup exists for files which have been offline since the last OPEN RESETLOGS.
Action: No action need be taken - this is an informational message only. To ensure a complete report of obsolete backups, mount a current control file.
RMAN-06146: changes found for file number beyond offline SCN
Cause: A CHANGE or REPORT command needs to compute the list of backups that are redundant and may be deleted. A backup was found for a file which is shown as offline in the target database control file, but the backup contains changes beyond the SCN when the file went offline. This is most likely because the target database control file is not really current, but is a restored copy of an older control file.
Action: Mount a current control file or a backup control file.
RMAN-06147: no obsolete backups found
Cause: A CHANGE or REPORT command could find no files that meet the specified criteria for obsoleteness.
Action: None - this is an informational message.
RMAN-06148: redundancy count must be greater than zero
Cause: The REDUNDANCY operand specified for a CHANGE or REPORT OBSOLETE command was zero.
Action: Specify a REDUNDANCY operand of 1 or greater.
RMAN-06150: auxiliary name for datafile number set to: string
Cause: This message is issued in response to a CONFIGURE AUXNAME command.
Action: None - this is an informational message.
RMAN-06151: datafile string creation SCN string
Cause: This is an informational message. It should be accompanied by other messages.
Action: None
RMAN-06153: validation failed for datafile copy
Cause: The CHANGE DATAFILECOPY VALIDATE command found that the datafile copy could not be found or no longer contains the same data, so its record was deleted from the recovery catalog.
Action: None - this is an informational message.
RMAN-06154: validation succeeded for datafile copy
Cause: The CHANGE DATAFILECOPY VALIDATE command found that the datafile copy still matches its data in the recovery catalog.
Action: None - this is an informational message.
RMAN-06155: validation failed for control file copy
Cause: The CHANGE CONTROLFILECOPY VALIDATE command found that the control file copy could not be found or no longer contains the same data, so its record was deleted from the recovery catalog.
Action: None - this is an informational message.
RMAN-06156: validation succeeded for control file copy
Cause: The CHANGE CONTROLFILECOPY VALIDATE command found that the control file copy still matches its data in the recovery catalog.
Action: None - this is an informational message.
RMAN-06157: validation failed for archived log
Cause: The CROSSCHECK ARCHIVELOG command determined that the archived log could not be found or no longer contained the same data, so its record was marked expired.
Action: None - this is an informational message.
RMAN-06158: validation succeeded for archived log
Cause: The CROSSCHECK ARCHIVELOG command or VALIDATE HEADER option determined that the archived log still matches its data.
Action: None - this is an informational message.
RMAN-06159: error while looking up backup set
Cause: An error occurred while looking up the specified backup set in the recovery catalog or target database control file.
Action: This error is accompanied by other errors describing the reason for the failure. Ensure that the key is entered correctly. If the backup set was created when the recovery catalog was not available, then a RESYNC CATALOG must be done to update the recovery catalog.
RMAN-06160: no backup pieces found for backup set key: number
Cause: No backup pieces for the requested backup set were found in the recovery catalog, or the target database control file.
Action: Specify an existing backup set.
RMAN-06161: error when inspecting auxiliary file name: string
Cause: This error is accompanied by other errors explaining the cause.
Action: Correct the auxiliary file name if it is wrong via the CONFIGURE AUXNAME command.
RMAN-06162: sql statement: string
Cause: This is the sql statement about to be executed for a SQL command.
Action: None, informational message only.
RMAN-06163: some datafiles cannot be recovered, aborting the RECOVER command
Cause: This message should be followed by one or more 6162 or 6164 messages.
Action: Check the accompanying errors.
RMAN-06164: WARNING: no channel of required type allocated to recover datafile number
Cause: A RECOVER command could not proceed because incremental backup sets or archived log backup sets exist on a device type that has not been allocated.
Action: Use the LIST command to determine which device type is needed, then allocate a channel of that type.
RMAN-06165: datafile string is too old to recover, restore a more recent copy
Cause: The archived logs and/or incremental backup sets required to recover the datafile do not exist, but a more recent backup of the datafile exists which can be recovered.
Action: Issue a RESTORE for the datafile, then reissue the RECOVER command.
RMAN-06166: datafile string cannot be recovered
Cause: Incremental backups or archived redo logs needed to recover the datafile cannot be found, and no recoverable full backup or datafile copy exists.
Action: Use the LIST command to see if there is a backup set or datafile copy that can be made AVAILABLE. If not, then the datafile is unrecoverable. If a full or datafile copy exists, then a Point-in-Time Recovery may be possible.
RMAN-06167: already connected
Cause: a CONNECT command was issued, but RMAN is already connected to the specified database.
Action: RMAN has no DISCONNECT command, so to connect to a different instance, exit RMAN and start it again.
RMAN-06168: no backup pieces with this tag found: string
Cause: A tag was used to specify a list of backup pieces, but no backup pieces with this tag could be found.
Action: Make sure the tag is specified correctly.
RMAN-06169: could not read file header for datafile string error reason string
Cause: The specified datafile could not be accessed. The reason codes are: 1 - file name is MISSINGxx in the control file 2 - file is offline 3 - file is not verified 4 - DBWR could not find the file 5 - unable to open file 6 - I/O error during read 7 - file header is corrupt 8 - file is not a datafile 9 - file does not belong to this database 10 - file number is incorrect 12 - wrong file version 15 - control file is not current
Action: If the error can be corrected, do so and retry the operation. The SKIP option can be used to ignore this error during a backup.
RMAN-06170: no control file copy found with offline range RECID string STAMP string datafile string
Cause: This offline range is needed for recovering the specified data file, but the offline range record has aged out of the current control file and no control file copy with the record could be accessed. At least 1 control file copy containing the offline range was found in the recovery catalog and was in AVAILABLE status.
Action: Query the RC_CONTROLFILE_COPY view for the names of all control file copies, then issue a CHANGE CONTROLFILECOPY ... VALIDATE; command for them. Then reissue the RECOVER command.
RMAN-06171: not connected to target database
Cause: A command was issued but no connection to the target database has been established.
Action: Issue a CONNECT TARGET command to connect to the target database.
RMAN-06172: no AUTOBACKUP found or specified handle is not a valid copy or piece
Cause: A restore could not proceed because no AUTOBACKUP was found or specified handle is not a valid copy or backup piece. In case of restore from AUTOBACKUP, it may be the case that a backup exists, but it does not satisfy the criteria specified in the user's restore operands. In case of restore from handle, it may be the handle is not a backup piece or control file copy. In may be that it does not exist.
Action: Modify AUTOBACKUP search criteria or verify the handle.
RMAN-06173: SET NEWNAME command has not been issued for datafile string when restore auxiliary
Cause: Auxiliary type was specified for the control file, but no SET NEWNAME command has been previously issued for a datafile.
Action: Issue SET NEWNAME command for every datafile in the recovery set.
RMAN-06174: not connected to auxiliary database
Cause: An auxiliary command was issued but no connection to a auxiliary database has been established.
Action: Issue a CONNECT AUXILIARY command to connect to the auxiliary database.
RMAN-06175: deleted script: string
Cause: A DELETE SCRIPT command was executed.
Action: None, informational message only.
RMAN-06176: no recovery required; all files are read only or offline
Cause: A RECOVER DATABASE command does not need to recover any files because all of the files to be recovered are offline or read only. This can only occur when the SKIP clause includes the SYSTEM tablespace.
Action: None, informational message only
RMAN-06177: restore not done; all files read only, offline, or already restored
Cause: A RESTORE command does not need to restore any files, because all of the files to be restored are offline, read-only, or are already restored to their correct destinations.
Action: None, informational message only
RMAN-06178: datafile number not processed because file is offline
Cause: A RESTORE DATABASE or RECOVER DATABASE command omitted processing the indicated datafile because it is offline clean at the desired point in time.
Action: None, informational message only
RMAN-06179: datafile number not processed because file is read-only
Cause: A RESTORE DATABASE or RECOVER DATABASE command omitted processing the indicated datafile because it is part of a read-only tablespace at the desired point in time.
Action: None, informational message only
RMAN-06180: incremental backups require Enterprise Edition
Cause: A BACKUP command with INCREMENTAL LEVEL > 0 was specified.
Action: Use FULL, or INCREMENTAL LEVEL 0.
RMAN-06181: multiple channels require Enterprise Edition
Cause: Attempt to allocate more than 1 channel in a job.
Action: Remove all except one ALLOCATE CHANNEL command.
RMAN-06182: archived log string of thread string with sequence string larger than MAXSETSIZE
Cause: A BACKUP ARCHIVELOG command specified the MAXSETSIZE operand too low. The specified archived log is larger than MAXSETSIZE will allow.
Action: Increase MAXSETSIZE limit.
RMAN-06183: datafile or datafile copy string (file number string) larger than MAXSETSIZE
Cause: A BACKUP DATAFILE(copy) command specified the MAXSETSIZE operand too low. The specified datafile is larger than MAXSETSIZE will allow.
Action: Increase MAXSETSIZE limit.
RMAN-06184: duplicate object in backup specifier: string string
Cause: A backup command specifies the same datafile or copy of a data file multiple times.
Action: Eliminate the duplicates.
RMAN-06185: Recovery Manager incompatible with string database: RMAN number.number.number.number to number.number.number.number required
Cause: This version of recovery manager was incompatible with the indicated database or the DBMS_BACKUP_RESTORE package installed in the indicated database.
Action: If the database has been upgraded from an earlier version, ensure that the catxxxx.sql script has been run successfully. Re-install dbmsbkrs.sql and prvtbkrs.plb if necessary. Otherwise, use a version of RMAN within the range specified in the error message.
RMAN-06186: PL/SQL package string.string version string in string database is too old
Cause: The specified PL/SQL package is a version that is too old to work with this version of the Recovery Manager (RMAN).
Action: If the database indicated is CATALOG, then you can use the UPGRADE CATALOG command to upgrade the recovery catalog to the most current version. If the database is TARGET or AUXILIARY, then you must either upgrade the specified database or use an older version of RMAN.
RMAN-06187: control file copy string not found or out of sync with catalog
Cause: The indicated file is not found, or is found but is not the same file that the recovery catalog thinks it is. It is likely that some operation outside of Recovery Manager has altered the file, or that Recovery Manager has not resynced with the target database.
Action: Re-catalog the file and retry the operation.
RMAN-06188: cannot use command when connected to a mounted target database
Cause: An attempt was made to issue a command that can be used only when there is no connection to the target database or when the target database is not mounted.
Action: Dismount the database or restart RMAN and use the command before connecting to the target database.
RMAN-06189: current DBID number does not match target mounted database (number)
Cause: SET DBID was used to set a DBID that does not match the DBID of the database to which RMAN is connected.
Action: If the current operation is a restore to copy the database, do not mount the database. Otherwise, avoid using the SET DBID command, or restart RMAN.
RMAN-06190: PL/SQL package string.string version string in string database is not current
Cause: RMAN detected an old version of the specified package. RMAN will execute in backwards-compatible mode.
Action: No action is required, but certain features and bug-fixes may not be available when RMAN runs in backwards-compatible mode. If the database is CATALOG, then you can use the UPGRADE CATALOG command to upgrade the recovery catalog to the most current version. If the database is TARGET or AUXILIARY, then you must either upgrade the specified database or use an older version of RMAN. The files that must be run to upgrade the target or auxiliary database are dbmsrman.sql and prvtrman.plb.
RMAN-06191: PL/SQL package string.string version string in string database is too new
Cause: RMAN detected an incompatible version of the specified package.
Action: Use a newer version of recovery manager. Message 6439 indicates the minimum required version of recovery manager.
RMAN-06192: maximum value for MAXPIECESIZE or MAXSETSIZE must be between 1 Kb and 2048 Gb
Cause: Input size for MAXPIECESIZE or MAXSETSIZE was out of range.
Action: Specify a valid size and retry the command.
RMAN-06193: connected to target database (not started)
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: The database must be started before any other RMAN commands are issued.

Action: The specified list of objects were not accessible at connected target database. Re-run the CROSSCHECK command after connecting to database that has DB_UNIQUE_NAME displayed in output for the specified object.
RMAN-06216: WARNING: db_unique_name mismatch - string objects could not be updated
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: Run CROSSCHECK command after connecting to a primary or physical standby database that can access the specified objects.
RMAN-06217: not connected to auxiliary database with a net service name
Cause: A command that moves files from the target instance to the auxiliary instance was requested. Such a command requires a net service name be present in the connect string used to connect to the auxiliary instance.
Action: Issue a CONNECT AUXILIARY command and include a net serice name in the connect string. That service name must be valid on the target instance.
RMAN-06218: List of objects requiring same operation on database with db_unique_name string
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: The specified list of objects were not accessible by the target database. Re-run the same command after connecting to database that has DB_UNIQUE_NAME displayed in output for the specified object.
RMAN-06219: List of objects not associated with all known db_unique_names
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: The specified list of objects were not accessible by the target database. Re-run the same command after connecting to primary database or physical standby database that can access the specified objects.
RMAN-06220: Creating automatic instance, with SID='string'
Cause: No connection to the auxiliary instance was provided, but the command requires an auxiliary instance.
Action: No action is required unless you want to create a permanent database, in which case you should stop the command and re-run it, providing an auxiliary instance connection.
RMAN-06221: Removing automatic instance
Cause: RMAN is removing the automatic auxiliary instance that was created for this command.

Cause: This message is issued in response to a LIST SCRIPT NAMES command. The following fields are shown for each script that is stored in the recovery catalog: Header indicating to what database the script belongs. Script Name: name of the script. Description: comment associated with this script.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06238: List of Databases
Cause: This message is issued in response to a LIST DB_UNIQUE_NAME command. The following fields are shown for each database that is known to the recovery catalog: DB Key: This is the unique key which identifies this database in the recovery catalog. DB Name: The name of the database. DB ID: The database ID. This is a number which remains the same for the life of the database, even if the database name is changed. DB_UNIQUE_NAME: db_unique_name value for the database.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06246: List of Database Incarnations
Cause: This message is issued in response to a LIST INCARNATION OF DATABASE command. The following fields are shown for each database that is registered with the recovery catalog: DB Key: This is the unique key which identifies this database in the recovery catalog. Inc Key: This is the unique key which identifies this incarnation of the database in the recovery catalog. DB Name: The name of the database. DB ID: The database ID. This is a number which remains the same for the life of the database, even if the database name is changed. Status: 'YES' if this is the current incarnation of this database, otherwise 'NO'. Reset SCN: SCN of the most recent RESETLOGS operation. Reset Time: Time of the most recent RESETLOGS operation.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06250: Report of files that need backup due to unrecoverable operations
Cause: An unlogged change (such as 'create table unrecoverable') has been made to this file, and the most recent backup of the file does not contain those changes.
Action: Take a backup of this file. If this file is lost before a backup is taken, then the unlogged modifications will be lost. The message indicates whether a full backup is required or whether a incremental backup will suffice.
RMAN-06263: string string string
Cause: This message is issued in response to the REPORT NEED BACKUP INCREMENTAL command, for those files which would use more than the specified number of incrementals during recovery.
Action: To reduce the number of incremental backups which would be used during recovery of this datafile, take a new full backup of this file now.
RMAN-06270: Report of files whose recovery needs more than number days of archived logs
Cause: This message is issued in response to the REPORT NEED BACKUP DAYS command for those files which need more than the specified number of days' archived logs for recovery.
Action: To reduce the number of log files needed for recovery of this datafile, take a new full or incremental backup now.
RMAN-06274: Report of files that must be backed up to satisfy number days recovery window
Cause: This message is issued in response to the REPORT NEED RECOVERY WINDOW OF n DAYS command for those files that must be backed up to satisfy specified retention policy.
Action: To satisfy specified recovery window for this datafile, take a new full or incremental backup now.
RMAN-06275: invalid number of days specified for report : string days
Cause: This message is issued in response to the REPORT NEED RECOVERY WINDOW OF n DAYS or REPORT NEED BACKUP DAYS n command when an invalid number of days was specified in input command.
Action: The number of days specified in REPORT command must be greater than zero.
RMAN-06280: Report of obsolete backups and copies
Cause: This message is issued in response to the REPORT OBSOLETE command. Each of the files listed is obsolete because it is more redundant than the level of redundancy specified in the REPORT command.
Action: Depending on your needs, you might need to take new backups.
RMAN-06290: Report of database schema for database with db_unique_name string
Cause: This message is issued in response to the REPORT SCHEMA command. The report shows the physical schema of the database at the indicated time. The following fields are shown for each datafile and tempfile: File: The file number. Size(MB): The size of the file in mega bytes. Tablespace: The name of the tablespace which contains this file. RB segs: YES if this file is part of a tablespace containing rollback segments, otherwise NO. Datafile/Tempfile Name: The file name. Maxsize(MB): Maximum file size to which file can be extended
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06300: Report of files with less than number redundant backups
Cause: This message is issued when the REPORT NEED BACKUP REDUNDANCY command is used for those files which have less than the specified number of backups which can be used for recovery.
Action: Take another backup of the datafiles listed.
RMAN-06306: ====================
Cause: This message is issued in response to a LIST BACKUP DATABASE/TABLESPACE/DATAFILE command when some backups were taken with the PROXY option. If a recovery catalog is in use, then the information comes from the recovery catalog, otherwise it comes from the target database control file. The following fields are shown for each proxy datafile backup. Key: This is the unique key which identifies this proxy backup in the recovery catalog. This value can be used in a CHANGE command to change its status. If the target database control file is being used as the recovery catalog, then this field uniquely identifies this copy in the control file. File: The file number that this file was copied from. Status: This is the status of the file. Possible values are: A - Available U - Unavailable D - Deleted X - Expired Status 'U' will not be used if the target database control file is being used as the recovery catalog. Completion time: This is the date and time when the backup was created. This column will be printed in the default Oracle date format, unless overridden with a NLS_DATE_FORMAT environment variable. Ckp SCN: This is the checkpoint SCN of the backup. The file contains all changes made at or before this SCN. Ckp time: This is the time that the file was last checkpointed. Handle: This is the media manager handle of the proxy backup.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06378: List of Backup Sets
Cause: This message is issued in response to a LIST BACKUP command.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06400: database opened
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06401: database is already started
Cause: A STARTUP command without the FORCE option was issued, but the target database is already started.
Action: Use the FORCE option if you want to restart the database.
RMAN-06402: Oracle instance shut down
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06403: could not obtain a fully authorized session
Cause: The most likely cause of this error is that one of the databases to which RMAN had previously connected is not started or has has been shutdown. Other error messages should identify exactly which database is the problem.
Action: Startup the database causing the problem.
RMAN-06404: database dismounted
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06405: database closed
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06406: deleted archived log
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06407: auxiliary instance file string deleted
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06408: recovery catalog upgraded to version string
Cause: This is an informational message issued by the UPGRADE CATALOG command. It indicates the version of the recovery catalog schema to which the recovery catalog was just upgraded. Note that this version number may not reflect the version number of your rman executable or target database, because the recovery catalog schema is not changed with each Oracle release.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06409: LIKE clause in LIST BACKUP OF ARCHIVELOG is not supported
Cause: LIST BACKUP OF ARCHIVELOG LIKE was used, which is not supported.
Action: Remove LIKE clause from command.
RMAN-06410: cannot use command when channels are allocated
Cause: An attempt was made to issue a command that can be used only when there are no allocated channels.
Action: Do not use the command, or de-allocate channels and use the command when no channels are allocated.
RMAN-06411: backup copies setting out of range (1-4): number
Cause: An attempt was made to set backup copies to an invalid value.
Action: Use a value in the specified range.
RMAN-06412: no proxy copy channel found
Cause: A proxy copy was started, but no allocated channel supports proxy copy. This could be because the media management software used by the target database does not support proxy copy, or because all of the allocated channels are of type DISK, which never support proxy copy.
Action: If this is a backup, then either allocate a non-disk channel, or do not use the PROXY option. If this is a restore, then a channel of the same type which created the proxy backup was allocated, but now does not support proxy copy. If proxy copy is no longer supported by the media management software at the target database, the CROSSCHECK or CHANGE commands should be used so that those backups will not be considered for further restores.
RMAN-06413: channel string does not support proxy copy
Cause: The channel which was specified for this backup or restore does not support proxy copy. This could be because the media management software used by the target database does not support proxy copy, or because the channel is of type DISK, which never supports proxy copy.
Action: If this is a backup, then either allocate a non-disk channel, or do not use the PROXY option. If this is a restore, then a channel of the same type which created the proxy backup was allocated, but now does not support proxy copy. If proxy copy is no longer supported by the media management software at the target database, the CROSSCHECK command should be used so that those backups will not be considered for further restores.
RMAN-06414: target database COMPATIBLE option does not support proxy copy
Cause: PROXY was specified, and the target database uses a media manager that supports proxy copy, but the COMPATIBLE initialization parameter of the target database must be 8.1.0 or greater to create proxy backups. If the database is downgraded to the earlier release that is specified in the COMPATIBLE parameter, then it will no longer be able to restore proxy backups.
Action: Either take a non-proxy backup or change the target database COMPATIBLE parameter.
RMAN-06415: file string cannot be proxy backed up
Cause: The PROXY option was specified, but the media management software used by the target database cannot back up the specified file using proxy copy. If PROXY ONLY was specified, then the backup is terminated. If PROXY was specified, then this file will be placed into a non-proxy backup set.
Action: Remove the ONLY option to place the files into a regular backup set, or contact the media management vendor if you believe that the media management software should support proxy copy of this file.
RMAN-06416: PROXY ONLY was specified and some files could not be proxy copied
Cause: PROXY ONLY was specified, and some of the files to be backed up could not be backed up by the media management software used by the target database. Message 6415 is issued for each file that cannot be proxy copied.
Action: Remove the ONLY option to place the files into a regular backup set, or contact the media management vendor if you believe that the media management software should support proxy copy of these files.
RMAN-06417: command not allowed when connected to a virtual private catalog
Cause: The command that was entered cannot be used while connected to a virtual private catalog.
Action: Connect to the base catalog and re-execute the command.
RMAN-06418: proxy incremental backups with level > 0 not supported
Cause: PROXY was specified for a non-level-zero incremental backup. Proxy backups may only be full or level 0 backups.
Action: Remove one of the conflicting options.
RMAN-06419: file string cannot be proxy restored from handle string
Cause: The media management software used by the target database indicated that it cannot restore the specified file from the specified backup handle.
Action: Consult the media management software documentation to find out why this restriction exists or contact the media management vendor.
RMAN-06420: some files could not be proxy restored - aborting restore
Cause: Some of the files to be restored could not be restored by the media management software used by the target database. Message 6419 is issued for each file that cannot be restored.
Action: Contact the media management vendor if you believe that the media management software should support proxy copy of these files. The CROSSCHECK or CHANGE commands can be used to remove these proxy copies from the catalog to prevent the RESTORE command from trying to restore from them.
RMAN-06421: sent command to channel: string
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06422: no channels found for SEND command
Cause: No channels with the specified names or device types were found. If no channel qualifiers were specified, then no channels were allocated.
Action: Specify a different channel type or allocate a channel of the desired type.
RMAN-06423: requested limit of number exceeds vendor limit of number
Cause: A SETLIMIT CHANNEL command was used to set the backup piece size limit, but the media management software used by the target database cannot create backup pieces that large.
Action: Specify a smaller backup piece limit.
RMAN-06424: error while looking up proxy copy
Cause: An error occurred while looking up the specified proxy copy in the recovery catalog or target database control file.
Action: This error is accompanied by other errors describing the reason for the failure. Ensure that the name or key is entered correctly. If the proxy copy was created when the recovery catalog was not available, then a RESYNC CATALOG must be done to update the recovery catalog.
RMAN-06425: <datafile pathname not available>
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06426: RECOVERY_CATALOG_OWNER role must be granted to user string
Cause: The CREATE CATALOG or UPGRADE CATALOG command was used, but the USERID that was supplied in the CATALOG connect string does not have the RECOVERY_CATALOG_OWNER role granted as a DEFAULT role.
Action: Grant the RECOVERY_CATALOG_OWNER role to the recovery catalog owner.
RMAN-06427: recovery catalog already exists
Cause: The CREATE CATALOG command cannot be used when the recovery catalog already exists.
Action: Use the UPGRADE CATALOG command to upgrade your recovery catalog to the most current release without losing any existing backup data. Use the DROP CATALOG command to remove an existing recovery catalog.
RMAN-06428: recovery catalog is not installed
Cause: A recovery catalog database connection has been made, but the recovery catalog tables and views have not been installed.
Action: If you mis-typed the recovery catalog owner USERID, then correct the USERID and reconnect to the recovery catalog. If this is the first time that you have signed on to Recovery Manager with this recovery catalog owner USERID, then use the CREATE CATALOG command to create the recovery catalog schema. Alternatively, exit RMAN and connect without specifying a recovery catalog connection.
RMAN-06429: string database is not compatible with this version of RMAN
Cause: The indicated database is not compatible with this version of the Recovery Manager (RMAN). Other messages have also been issued which detail the cause of the error.
Action: See the other messages. If the database is CATALOG, then you may be able to use the CREATE CATALOG or UPGRADE CATALOG commands to correct the problem. If the database is TARGET or AUXILIARY, then you must either upgrade the target database or use a newer version of the RMAN executable.
RMAN-06430: recovery catalog USERID cannot be SYS
Cause: A recovery catalog connection was made to USERID SYS. The recovery catalog must be created in a USERID other than SYS.
Action: Specify a different USERID in the CATALOG connect string.
RMAN-06431: recovery catalog created
Cause: This is an informational message issued by the CREATE CATALOG command.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06432: recovery catalog dropped
Cause: This is an informational message issued by the DROP CATALOG command.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06433: error installing recovery catalog
Cause: An error was received from the recovery catalog database while it was being installed. Another error message shows the error message from the server.
Action: The most common reasons for failure to install the recovery catalog are:

- Lack of space in the recovery catalog database: allocate more space, use the DROP CATALOG command to remove any partially installed recovery catalog, and retry the command.

- Object already exists: This is caused by a partial recovery catalog installation. Use the DROP CATALOG command to remove the partially installed recovery catalog and retry the command.

RMAN-06434: some errors occurred while removing recovery catalog
Cause: Some errors were received from the recovery catalog database while removing the recovery catalog.
Action: Correct the error(s) and retry the command. Note that Recovery Manager intercepts and ignores common errors, such as 'object not found', which can happen while removing a partially installed recovery catalog. Only serious errors will be displayed while removing the recovery catalog.
RMAN-06435: recovery catalog owner is string
Cause: This is an informational message issued by the UPGRADE CATALOG and DROP CATALOG commands.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06436: enter DROP CATALOG command again to confirm catalog removal
Cause: The DROP CATALOG command deletes the recovery catalog, rendering all database backups unusable, and should be used with care. The command must be entered twice to ensure that this is really what you want to do.
Action: If you really want to remove the recovery catalog, then enter the DROP CATALOG command again.
RMAN-06437: cannot drop catalog - catalog is newer than this RMAN
Cause: The DROP CATALOG command was entered, but the recovery catalog was created by a newer version of the Recovery Manager (RMAN). This version of RMAN may not be able to drop the entire recovery catalog.
Action: Use the version of RMAN which most recently created or upgraded the recovery catalog.
RMAN-06438: error executing package DBMS_RCVMAN in string database
Cause: Recovery Manager requires the DBMS_RCVMAN package in the SYS schema of the indicated database. Normally this package is installed during database creation. To re-create the package, run the files dbmsrman.sql and prvtrmns.plb.
Action: re-create the DBMS_RCVMAN package in the SYS schema.
RMAN-06439: RMAN must be upgraded to version string to work with this package
Cause: This message indicates the minimum version of recovery manager required to use the package which was specified in message 6191.
Action: A newer version of RMAN must be used with this package.
RMAN-06440: virtual catalog dropped
Cause: This is an informational message issued by the DROP CATALOG command, when connected to a virtual private catalog. Note that dropping a virtual private catalog does not delete any data, because the catalog data is owned by the base catalog.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06441: cannot upgrade catalog - catalog is already newer than this RMAN
Cause: The recovery catalog is already at a version level that is greater than this version of the Recovery Manager. The UPGRADE CATALOG command is not needed.
Action: Either upgrade to a more recent Recovery Manager, or continue to use the current version. Message 6191 will be issued if the recovery catalog is too new to work with this version of Recovery Manager.
RMAN-06442: enter UPGRADE CATALOG command again to confirm catalog upgrade
Cause: The UPGRADE CATALOG command alters the recovery catalog schema. Although the recovery catalog is designed to be compatible with older versions of the Recovery Manager (RMAN), it is possible that an upgrade will remove support for older versions of RMAN.
Action: If you really want to upgrade the recovery catalog, then enter the UPGRADE CATALOG command again. If you are not going to use an older version of RMAN with this recovery catalog, then compatibility is not an issue. If you plan to also continue using an older version of RMAN with this recovery catalog then, before upgrading, consult the Migration Guide for the current Oracle release to determine if upgrading to the current version of the recovery catalog will remove support for older versions of RMAN.
RMAN-06443: error upgrading recovery catalog
Cause: An error was received from the recovery catalog database while upgrading the recovery catalog.
Action: Correct the error and retry the command. Note that the Recovery Manager intercepts and ignores common errors, such as 'column already exists,' which can happen if the recovery catalog has already been partially upgraded. Only serious errors will be displayed while upgrading the recovery catalog.
RMAN-06444: error creating string
Cause: During the CREATE CATALOG or UPGRADE CATALOG command, the indicated object could not be created due to errors.
Action: Make sure that the RECOVER.BSQ file has not been modified or damaged, and then if this error persists, contact Oracle support. If the error refers to one of the RMAN PL/SQL packages, connect to the recovery catalog owner and query the USER_ERRORS view to find out the details of the compilation errors.
RMAN-06445: cannot connect to recovery catalog after NOCATALOG has been used
Cause: The CONNECT CATALOG command was used after the user had already specified the NOCATALOG option.
Action: Re-start rman if you wish to use a recovery catalog.
RMAN-06446: changed proxy copy unavailable
Cause: This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-06447: changed proxy copy available

Action: No action is required.
RMAN-07527: Reason: File was not created using DB_RECOVERY_FILE_DEST initialization parameter
Cause: This message should be accompanied by other message(s) indicating the name of file that was not created using DB_RECOVERY_FILE_DEST initialization parameter. One of the following scenarios caused this error: 1) This is an archived log file and was created when the LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_n initialization parameter was set explicitly to flash recovery area location. For example, LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_1='location=+FRA' where '+FRA' was also your DB_RECOVERY_FILE_DEST value. 2) This is an RMAN backup file and was created in a flash recovery area using the FORMAT option of the BACKUP command. 3) This is an online log file or current control file and was created prior to setting the flash recovery area. 4) This file fits none of the above scenarios and is not supported by the flash recovery area.
Action: All of following actions will resolve future occurrences of this error: 1) To create archived logs in flash recovery area, set the LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_n initialization parameter to 'location=USE_DB_RECOVERY_FILE_DEST'. Do not explicitly set the LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_n initialization parameter to a flash recovery area location. 2) To create RMAN backups in flash recovery area, do not use the FORMAT option of the BACKUP command. All of following actions will resolve current problem: 1) If this is an archived log file or an RMAN backup file, use the CATALOG command to re-catalog the files. 2) If this is an online log file or a current control file to be managed by the flash recovery area, re-create the file using the DB_RECOVERY_FILE_DEST initialization parameter.
RMAN-07528: number of files not managed by recovery area is string, totaling stringB
Cause: This message should be accompanied by other message(s) indicating the list of files. Either the files listed are not known to the database or not managed by flash recovery area. The number and size of the files are shown. This is an informational message only.
Action: No action is required.
RMAN-07529: Reason: catalog is not supported for this file type
Cause: The CATALOG command encountered one or more files of types that cannot be cataloged.
