Error when Cloning a Database

edited Sep 11, 2019 3:12AM in Enterprise Manager

Hi All,

When I try to create of a database (volumes are from a storage array snapshot) using the parameter file, ascii controlfile that I recorded from primary database when I created the storage snapshot, I get an error saying INSTANCE_NUMBER is already in use. The server on which I am trying to create a clone database on is in a Cluster, but the primary database is a STANDALONE database running only on that node. Any ideas what could be wrong here?
