RMAN writes to local filesystems, or at least ones that appear to be a local filesystem. It cannot write to a filesystem elsewhere on your network. But there are workarounds. If you are running Oracle on Windows, you can map a drive which points to the file share. If you are running Oracle on Unix/Linux, you can crossmount a file share. In both cases, the filesystem will appear to be local when it is not.
