Welcome to the forum.

Please read OraFAQ Forum Guide and How to use [code] tags and make your code easier to read.
Make sure that lines of code do not exceed 80 characters when you format.
Indent the code, use code tags and align the columns in result.
Use the "Preview Message" or "Preview Quick Reply" button to verify.

Post your script.
Note that unlike SQL*Plus, RMAN does not accept '/' as the end of a command, it is necessarily ';'.
