SYSBACKUP travails, part II

The SYSBACKUP connectivity problems described in the previous post are caused by unpublished bug 15828768.

There is a way to connect, using SYSBACKUP privilege:

 

RMAN> connect target ‘system@local as sysbackup’

target database Password:
connected to target database: ORA12C (DBID=214280212, not open)

Please, note the quotes around the connection string. Without the quotes, this will not work. It works with both single and double quotes:

RMAN> connect target “system@local as sysbackup”

target database Password:
connected to target database: ORA12C (DBID=214280212, not open)

This would require me to change quite a few scripts, in order to utilize SYSBACKUP connections with a commercial backup utility. Fortunately, Oracle is aware of the problem and is actively working on it.
