    No, there is no specific flag for such. The way to accomplish what you want is to not specify any form of backup flag.

    Don't use any of the following:

    [-backupLocation - <Specify directory to backup your database before starting the upgrade>]

    [-createGRP - <true | false> To create a guaranteed restore point when database is in archive log and flashback mode.]

    [-useExistingBackup - <true | false> To restore database using existing RMAN backup.]

    [-useGRP - <Specify the name of the existing guaranteed restore point> To restore the database using a specified guaranteed restore point.]

    When none of the above are used, you should see the following in the DBUA Trace Log:

    - The user has choosen to follow his/her own backup and restore strategy :
