RMAN-05541: No Archived Logs Found in Target Database

Issue: RMAN-05541: no archived logs found in target database.

When performing a RMAN Database duplication, I get the following error:

RMAN-03002: failure of Duplicate Db command at 07/30/2013 09:39:05
RMAN-05501: aborting duplication of target database
RMAN-05541: no archived logs found in target database


  • Target database may not be in the archivelog mode before taking backup so first check it.
  • Sometimes Database in archived log mode, but control file did not have any archived log records. 


Enable archivelog mode and perform log switch before backup.

 no archive logs found in target database

sql> alter database archivelog;
