Wriring to a Linux

I'm trying to do a backup Oracle 10g database in Linux but it failed to mount. I was advised to write to the box which is a Linux box.  I'm not familair how to do this. This is just to test if I'm able to write to it and confirmed why my backup is failing to mount in the process.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You need to be able to 'login' to the Linux box with the 'Oracle' account -- or -- an account with privileges to 'sudo su - ' to the Oracle account.

Once in the Linux box, you need to check if your account -- or -- the Oracle account have privileges to write to the backup path.
