I have do database cloning from one server to another i.e. solaris to linux.i had seen rman duplicate is the best practise for the same host. but i m not able to find out for different platforms.my situation is like....i have to clone my production database that is on solaris to new linux box which is have only linux o/s on it. no database yet.i was searching for proper steps for such a situation but not found yet.if somebody passed with same situation then please let me know.

You can use TRANSPORT tablespace option.
or EXPORT / IMPORT is database size is not big.

If they are same endians, yes.
But still, I would not do duplication. For duplication RMAN requires the same OS in both nodes.
We used transportable features to migrate 2tb database from windows to linux using RMAN (just copied the files).

As Mahesh said, if they are having the same endian format and on 10g you can transfer the volumes. But as far as SUN to Linux is concerned, SUN is on BIG endian format and Linux on LITTLE. You can not convert the endian format for these volumes from SUN to Linux.
Only option left is logically migrate the database either using export/import, etl tool, sql loader, shareplex, streams etc

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENDIAN_FORMAT
--------------
2
Solaris[tm] OE (64-bit)

Did you read the previous message by Macdba?
>>which of the best practise would solve my problem
Already answered.
If the volume of data is low or
endidans will not match export import is the preferred method.

Not sure I understand your question.
Why would you want to "bring" the backups over?
It is of no worth as the OS hosting the databases hosting the database has changed.
In other words, backups created in Solaris are not useful in linux.

Even with different endian formats, you can still consider RMAN's CONVERT DATAFILE or TABLESPACE for your conversion.
