      For RMAN Duplication to work, can I use Recovery Catalog instead of target database? DB version 10.2.0.3 & OS Version RHEL

      Why would it be necessary to connect to Target (Primary) database when creating an auxiliary database as part of the duplicating operation? DB Version is 10.2.0.3

      Thanks in advance

      With regards

            Hi,

            10g "you must connect RMAN to both the target (primary) database and an auxiliary instance started in NOMOUNT mode."
