Yes, thanks. I am interested.

I guess I'll just do it a couple times... but of course in this case, once I restore to a new server, I can get the data I need and destroy the database.

I'll look into it further, but there are some things about RMAN like this one that are starting to look not as easy. (like SETing the database name, and file locations in the trace file, mounting and opening, thus restoring on same server with existing DB).

P.S. Exports are presently not being done on these due to space restrictions -- which I believe will not be permanent.

You can restore the database on a different server and the same name and then recreate the controlfile by using SET instead of REUSE to rename it (obviously changing the init file parameters and name).


I wrote a document for my last organization which steps through cloning via this process including using nid to change the DBID if you're interested. I've learned some things since then which make it somewhat simplistic but it has the syntax you would need.

You can restore on the same server with the same name and a different namespace (I believe that's the term) but I haven't done that in years.
