RMAN-00600: internal error, arguments [9222] [] [] [] []

I faced following error message while creating a standby database from live database using RMAN DUPLICATE command.

For standby database to work properly and connect with the primary (and primary to connect with the standby), password file of primary needs to be copied to the standby database host. In my case, I forgot to do this before executing DUPLICATE command “FROM ACTIVE DATABASE”. After copying password file, my duplicate command executed successfully.
