We had a test of the network bandwidth. Copied files from the production to the new server.
It is unsatisfied. We informed them the result.
Then they decided and informed us that a RMAN Backup will be placed on the new Server.
My colleagues are fine with it and they said they know it.
But, I want to be sure of with it. Please confirm me.
From this article http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/11g ... -11gr2.php
I understood to perform the below when RMAN Backup is placed on the new Server:
1. set ORACLE_SID=DB11G and STARTUP NOMOUNT;
2. No target or catalog. Metadata comes from backups.
rman AUXILIARY /
3. Target, but no catalog. Metadata comes from target database controlfile.
$ rman TARGET sys/password@DB11G-SOURCE AUXILIARY /
'spfile' should not be used
4.DUPLICATE DATABASE TO DB11G
BACKUP LOCATION '/PATH-on-New Server/fast_recovery_area/'
5 Recover Database is needed?
