I am trying to do a backup from a Win2000 Server running Oracle 8i to a PC running Win2000 Prof. A drive is mapped on the server to the workstation, with Administrator access, but the backup does not go through. It gives the following error:
RMAN-10035:exception raised in RPC:ORA-19504:failed to create file "P:b_Omdoukpq_22_1". ORA-27040:skgfrcre:create error, unable to create file. O/S-Error: (OS5) Access is denied.I am not sure if I can backup to a network path (whether I can specify this network path in the channel). Please assist if you can.
Oracle has always had a problem accessing shared folders in a Windows environment. The write calls that Oracle makes come up with the ORA-27040 error often. I've seen times where it works fine and then suddenly, it quits working. From discussions I've had with Oracle Support in the past, their response has been that Oracle does not support shared folders in a Windows environment. I'm not sure if this is still true so you may want to contact Oracle Support.
