RMAN-05001: auxiliary file name conflicts with a file used by the target database

In 11g, duplicate a standby database from active database with “RMAN-05001” error:

RMAN> run {
      duplicate target database for standby from active database;
      }

RMAN-05001: auxiliary file name /u02/oradata/TESTDBSTY/sysaux01.dbf 
            conflicts with a file used by the target database

WORKAROUND

The issue is a bug, it seems the file system for both primary and standby database are the same, though “db_file_name_convert” and “log_file_name_convert” are configured already.

Add “NOFILENAMECHECK” option into duplicate RMAN command:

RMAN> run 
      {
         duplicate target database for standby 
         from active database nofilenamecheck;
      }

This issue does not happen on 12c, so it seems a bug for 11g.

In 12c , try to duplicate a standby database with below errors:

WORKAROUND

In tnsnames.ora of both primary and standby database server, add  “(UR = A)” for the standby database entry :

TESTDBSTY =
(DESCRIPTION =
   (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = hostname)(PORT = 1521))
   (CONNECT_DATA = (SERVICE_NAME = TESTDBSTY)(UR=A))
)

ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied

Try to connect to 12c standby database , then get “ORA-01017” error.

$ sqlplus sys/password@TESTDBSTY as sysdba

ERROR:
ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied

After investigation, found the listener is running by 11R2 binary, instead of 12cR1 binary.

Restart the listener in 12cR1 ORACLE_HOME, then everything is fine.

Always run listener by using the highest version of all ORACLE_HOME.

ORA-12514: TNS:listener does not currently know of service requested in connect descriptor

Before start to create standby database by using DUPLICATE command, try to connect to  auxiliary instance:

RMAN>  connect auxiliary  sys/password@testdbsty

RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============

ERROR:

Workaround:

Add an entry in listener.ora, and then reload listener to make it effective:

SID_LIST_LISTENER =
(SID_LIST =
   (SID_DESC =
      (GLOBAL_DBNAME = TESTDBSTY)
      (SID_NAME = TESTDBSTY)
      (ORACLE_HOME = /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1)
  )
..
.
}
