RMAN restore with Windows

P: n/a

I found a few documents on this topic, but didn't resolve my issue.

I am trying to restore an RMAN backup to a different host

(with a differnet instance name) from where the backup was taken. And
while running it gives the following error:

ORA-19505: failed to identify file "g:\......fullback.546.1"

ORA-27041: unable to open file

ORA-04002 unable to open file

O/S-Error : (OS 3) the system cannot find the path specified

Here g: drive is a shared drive and all the m/c have access to
this drive.

Also I found a few documents which talked about starting the instances
under Administrator user, but did quite understand it.

If any of you had come across this problem and had a solution to this,
could you please share it with me.

thanks,

sunil.

This is not what the Oracle error message says. It *specifically* say
that when it requested access to that file on the G:\ drive, the
Microsoft Windows Operating system said, quote "the system cannot find
the path specified" unquote.

*That* _is_ the error. Period.

Try UNC instead. This is many times more sensible than to rely on
someone/something to perform the right drive mapping on whatever
server. As you have experienced first hand with this error.

Hi,

the solution for your problem is :

on both server you must the account from the Windows-Service
(oraclehomeservice<Inst.> and oracletnslistener change to the same
admistrator account. Restart the services an then it's work.

Hi, Did you ever get this resolved? I am trying to do the exact same thing you are. I followed the instructions on Note 145843.1 on Oracle Metalink and it did not help. I really need to resolve this. Thanks.
