am running Oracle10gR2 on Red Hat Linux. Whenever I try
to run RMAN from the console, it does nothing. I am able to Ctrl-C out of
it back to the prompt so it does not hang the server.

I have tried RMAN target /
but it still does not work only show an error:
rman can't open target.

Any suggestions would be appreciated

Thank's guys

Check if the correct RMAN is being invoked.

Try which RMAN

Also try using $ORACLE_HOME/bin/rman to ensure the right rman is being invoked.

Verify connect string is correct. Try sql*plus

connect to target
sqlplus targetdb/<passwd>@<target connect str>

connect to catalog
sqlplus catalogdb/<passwd>@<catalog connect str>


RMAN>
RMAN> CONNECT TARGET   targetdb/<passwd>@<target connect str>
RMAN> CONNECT CATALOG catalogdb/<passwd>@<catalog connect str>
RMAN>
