DUPLICATE Without Connection to Target Database

Backup-Based: Duplication Without a Target Connection













Oracle DUPLICATE Without Connection to Target Database, that's a 11gR2 Feature. DUPLICATE can be performed without connecting to a target database. This requires connecting to a catalog and auxiliary database.

Start...
- Create password file
$ orapwd file=/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1/dbs/orapwAUX entries=5

Enter password for SYS:
- Create pfile (use ORACLE_SID=AUX)
SQL> create pfile='/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1/dbs/initAUX.ora' from spfile;

File created.
Modify initAUX.ora file.

- Check parameters and create some directories
$ mkdir -p /oracle/product/admin/AUX/adump
- Check Target Database in Catalog
$ sqlplus rman/password@catalog
