RE: RMAN Duplication for Migration and Archived Logs

In 10.2? I am pretty sure streams can apply DDL for a sequence creation can't it? I don't have a streams setup handy now to test this, but I'm sure that the last one I did was capturing create sequence DDL and applying it. In 10.2 capture will capture all DDL except about 6 different statements.

I agree about SYS objects, but sequences are not all owned by SYS.

Hi Don,

 The answer to (2) is: No. Streams can't replicate sys,system,ctxsys(?) owned objects.
 You will have to deal with Sequences on your own.  As for 32-bit to 64-bit Streams replication, I had tested Oracle9i (32-bit) to
Oracle10gR1 (64-bit) without any problems.
