    RMAN option of database cloning

    991489
      Hello Everybody,

      I am new to RMAN option of database cloning. I have few basic queries regarding RMAN cloning

      1) Is it mandatory to have the initialization parameter values (like DB_BLOCK_SIZE, COMPATIBLE, UNDO_TABLESPACE) of cloned instance similar to Production Instance?

      2)Do I need the database to be in archivelog mode for RMAN cloning?

      DB Version 11.2.0.2
      OS Version: Linux

      Thanks

          Yes

          Do I need the database to be in archivelog mode for RMAN cloning?

          I cannot think of a case where you would not what archivelog mode. If you are not using archivelog, its more a restore than a duplicate.

          Example

          Duplicating a Database to a Remote Host with a different Directory Structure
