I am on oracle 11gr2 and doing an duplicate without connecting to primary or catalog.
My full backup is spread across multiple location.
Is there any way to specify multiple location in the duplicate backup location ??
Duplicate database to DEVDB30 BACKUP LOCATION '/backup01/prod/rman' NOFILENAMECHECK;
The other workaround is to create soft link; But i just want to know if there is any way to specify multiple location in the RMAN command itself.
How will the duplicate command work with out connecting to primary or the catalog? The location of the backup files are based on where they were backed up to there is no way to change that unless you move the files and recatalog the new location.
From Database Backup and Recovery User's Guide at Duplicating a Database
In backup-based duplication, RMAN creates the duplicate database by using pre-existing RMAN backups and copies. This technique of duplication uses one of the following mutually exclusive subtechniques:
I have not read where you can specify multiple back location during a duplicate with out connecting to a target or catalog.
Based on EdStevens reply I learned something new that you do not even need to have a connection to target or catalog rman will use the backup location.
