When I type rman Target sys/password@oracle_sid

I get the following error:

Recovery Manager: Release 9.2.0.1.0 - 64bit Production

I don't know how to resolve this error. The listener and the database are running.

Assuming OS authentification is enabled, you just have to set your environment variable ORACLE_SID on the database server, then :
rman target /

If you wish to use Oracle Net authentification, or if you must connect from a remote client (not directly on the DB server), you have to edit the file TNSNAMES.ORA located in <ORACLE_HOME>/network/admin and configure host, port and service to reach.

You are right the problem was I didn't have a tnsnames.ora file. Once I created it and put an entry for the database in it. RMAN worked. Thank You!
