Remote Cloning of PDBs and Non-CDBs (12.1.0.2)

I mentioned in a previous post that I would be revisiting some of my existing multitenant articles to include some of the features introduced in the 12.1.0.2 patch. Here’s one of them.

Not only have Oracle fixed the bug in 12.1.0.1 that prevented the remote cloning, but they’ve also added the ability to clone directly from non-CDB style instances, giving you another option for migrating from non-CDBs to PDBs. Pretty darn cool if you ask me! :)

Some more stuff will be amended over the coming days. If the changes result in some major rewrites I’ll probably blog about them. If not, I’ll just slip them into the articles and make a reference to the fact the specific feature was introduced in 12.1.0.2…

Cheers
