Yes, strangely enough I can touch a file there without error.
And the directory exists with fully open permissions:

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

Hello, I setup a simple RMAN solution to backup a local database. It writes to a 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 I'm constantly getting an error when it attempts to backup the controlfile.
Oddly enough, after it tries to backup the controlfile, the date/time stamp changes in the disk channel for the controlfile, but at the RMAN console I ALWAYS get the same error message group:
Starting Control File Autobackup at 14-SEP-05 RMAN-00571: =========================================================== RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS =============== RMAN-00571: =========================================================== RMAN-03009: failure of Control File Autobackup command on ORA_DISK_1 channel at 09/14/2005 16:33:56 ORA-19504: failed to create file "/xfer/rman_backups/bell1_nic/control_files/controlfile_NICxxxxx_c-53732 8752-20050914-01_20050914.ctl" ORA-27037: 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 happening in the disk channel, the timestamp on the file is changing.
