Hello

rman duplicate database does not support cross endians migration

( with diferent endian combinations, you have to use transportable tablespaces or datapump)

Could be possible  rman duplicate database support  cross endians migrations?

ie. duplicate database between Linux x86 and solaris sparc.

I think that it would be a great enhancement for Cross-Platform Data Transport.

Regards

    Not sure encouraging cross-endian duplicates is a good idea.....

    For a genuine migration it's a real-life problem, and that is why RMAN has the features to do it.

    For just a duplicate - it's not a duplicate if you need to convert it.

    A duplicate means, same database, same O/S.

    Otherwise it's not a duplicate.

    When you have your test server on an other endian than your prod server. Would that be an application?

    Yes, this is the idea ,  i was thinking about an actual issue...we have producction databases in Sparc Solaris, but a developer team wants to clone it in linux...oh!!! it is not be able to do it using a simple rman command.
