Mine name is Damr Vadas, author of One Click Clone, fully automated clonning of EBS instance (http://www.google.hr/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&ved=0CDEQFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.hroug.hr%2Fhr%2Fcontent%2Fdownload%2F6062%2F80200%2Ffile%2FR11_Vadas%2520One%2520click%2520Clone.pdf&ei=BTjEUYPkEoj44QT87YCQCg&usg=AFQjCNE6tLYMdJkqhpbeHNmIigOtIV7k3A&sig2=rX8LsnUdCUyKRuJYSGNSIw).
This makes me pretty educated administrator for clonning processes on EBS ... and some kind on experienced DBA for Retail (at least part for DB).
However, according How To Clone Oracle Retail Applications? [ID 1371842.1],Retail Application Cloning Process [ID 1485230.1] official Oracle documents, seems that Retail cloning is not supported by Oracle.
In other doc Oracle Retail Rapid Installation [ID 1196607.1] there are mentioned clonnig steps of db side as offline datafile copy.
Even this method has some known problems (Database Objects (RULE SET) In RIB AQ Database Become Invalid [ID 1300869.1], After Cloning Of RIB Database, Cannot StartUp Hospital Retry Adapters And Messages Are Not Flowing [ID 1434044.1) so I'm pretty confused what is then allowed?
Mine question is: Is there any way to make clone DB side (database only) with any kind of RMAN online backup?
Is there any steps that should be performed after duplicate command?
