    RMAN recovery from RAC to non-RAC

    859636
      Hi,
      I have a 2 node 11.2.03 (PSU2) RAC database running on solaris and I want to restore and recover the RMAN backup into a different server which is 11.2.0.3 stand alone database. Do I have to have this stand alone database also in the same patch set level (PSU2)? or I should be able to restore the RMAN backup without applying PSU2?
      Thanks

          It is not required for you to have the PSU2 on the standalone server. You can restore & recover the backup without applying PSU2

            Hello;

            It will probably work without patch set update. So can you do it? yes.

            Should you do it? no.

            Take a step back and decide if you want to take shortcuts and do sloppy work.

            Objects in your restored database Will Not match the software you are using. Its just a bad idea.

            Best Regards
