Hi Prem,

It looks for the default autobackup location ($ORACLE_HOME/dbs for
9i/Unix for backups to disks). Otherwise you have to specify the
location that was used when overriding this default location.
That's why it's not a very good idea to not keep the default location
in the persistant configuration (unless you're not comfortable with
having backups under ./dbs)
