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.

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.
