    RMAN-06496: must use the TO clause when the database is mounted or open


      on the way to repaire a physical standby database by using URL


      --try to do this step as article mentioned:

      9. Connect to the physical standby database using RMAN and restore the standby control file.

      RMAN> restore standby controlfile from '/u04/oracle/dg_staging/ForStandbyCTRL.bck';

      ##what I do like below: ( in the standby database server, and standby database is in nomount mode)

      xxx:/work/backup_8_21-> rman target sys/xxxx@pwms

      feel confused, in the article, the database must be in "no mount" mode, how can I do?

      thank you
