Except that active database duplication does not require any backup at all. It's real time, across the network. Saves a lot of time there. :-)

Technically, it *should* be possible to do it in 10.2 as well. Just not automated in a single duplicated command. But all the duplicate does is a backup as copy, and then recovers that.

I haven't tested it ... Would be worth investigating, though

(Excellent book!!!)  

It notes that V11 RMAN can now duplicate a DB without having any existing backup.

The source of the duplication is an active database. COOL!  

Does anyone know if V11 RMAN can interoperate against lower version databases?

Unfortunately I'm in no position to test this capability myself.
