I have copied RMAN full backup copy from PROD server mount point /rmanbackup to TEST server mount point /backup. Is it possible to restore the database with the full backup copy on test server using RMAN ?
Note : I dont want to mount PROD Mount point here in test server. Because the restore will happen using network bandwidth. so restore will happen slowly.
I am not sure about the database version you are using.
If on 10g or above, then refer this http://shivanandarao.wordpress.com/2012/04/19/duplicating-primary-database-to-a-new-host-without-connecting-to-the-primary-database-in-oracle-10g11g/
If on 11g and want to make use of the feature available in 11g, then refer this http://shivanandarao.wordpress.com/2012/04/28/duplicating-database-without-connecting-to-target-database-or-catalog-database-in-oracle-11g/
Thank you! The duplicatling database post in your blog is very useful. But i renamed the mount point name as /rmanbackup like in PROD server and copied the PROD Rman backup to test server & restored the database.
