I got a little problem with restoring rman level 0 backup.I have rman backup in oracle 22.214.171.124.0 - 64bit and want to restore on Test server 126.96.36.199.0 - 64bit.
Production server sid=prd
Test server sid=prderp
OS is Oracle linux 5 on both servers.
How to restore Rman if SID is different?

You need to restore it as the same name as you have it in the production and later change the dbname using the NID utility.
If you do not want to go with this method, then I would suggest you to go with the RMAN duplicate method.
