Can you touch a file of that name to create one?
It seems to suggest a problem creating the file
Sorry to be so obvious
oerr ora 19504
19504, 00000, "failed to create file \"%s\""
// *Cause: call to create file returned an error
// *Action: check additional messages, check access permissions

Subject: Nagging RMAN error
I setup a simple RMAN solution to backup a local database. It writes
disk channel, not tape. So I am easily able to verify that something is
written each time. It backs up the database files without error, but
constantly getting an error when it attempts to backup the controlfile.
Oddly enough, after it tries to backup the controlfile, the date/time
changes in the disk channel for the controlfile, but at the RMAN console
ALWAYS get the same error message group:
Starting Control File Autobackup at 14-SEP-05
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-03009: failure of Control File Autobackup command on ORA_DISK_1
channel at 09/14/2005 16:33:56ORA-19504
: failed to create file
: unable to obtain file status
SVR4 Error: 20: Not a directory
Additional information: 4
Does anyone know why I keep getting this? As I said "something" is
in the disk channel, the timestamp on the file is changing.
