Dear Sir,

I am learning how to clone database using cold backup, and I read many articles on it finally tried all the steps but finally I got stuck in some step so please help me .

I have copied all datafile ,redofile and also created control file but I am getting error while inititialisation of my clone(CVM) instance.

SQL> startup nomount pfile=C:\ORACLE\PRODUCT\10.1.0\DB_1\DATABASE\INITCVM.ORA;
LRM-00109: could not open parameter file 'C:\ORACLE\PRODUCT\10.1.0\DB_1\DATABASE
\INITCVM.ORA'
ORA-01078: failure in processing system parameters

but I have copied this file to C:\ORACLE\PRODUCT\10.1.0\DB_1\DATABASE location but still giving me error.

Thanks In advance

>I am learning how to clone database using cold backup,
If the DB was cleanly shutdown prior the clone, then the files do not know that they now reside on different system
& the DB should only require simple "STARTUP" to bring it back online.
It is not clear whether you have an error of omission or error of commission, but you do have some sort of error.

I give you 2 ways (there are other ones):
1/ Full backup, copy the backup files, restore.
2/ Stop the source database, copy all its files to target location, restart source database, create new service in target server, start the new database.

Regards
Michel

A database cloning procedure is especially useful for the DBA who wants to give his developers a full-sized TEST and DEV instance by cloning the PROD instance into the development server areas.

1/ What has this remark has to do with the current problem?
2/ And this is a bad practice as it gives access to anyone to confidential data.
Data should be anonymized and his is very seldomly done.
3/ This is a lie, how many development sites have several terabytes server? Only small applications can be cloned like this. Yes, I know some of them, but this does NOT give better development that those with small servers AND appropriate not real data.

Michel
