RE: rman duplicate to previous version after upgrade
Date: Mon, 2 Feb 2009 10:01:35 +0100
Thank you for the answer.
With your help I managed to restore the database to the new server. Just for the list archive the steps were:
Connect old catalog and the instance
Restore controlfile to <new location>
Set newname for all datafile
Switch all datafile
Recover until time

I think all you need to do is a restore of the old database to the new server.
In a nutshell:
Startup nomount new instance
Connec to instance and rman catalog
From RMAN "set dbid ..."
You can get the dbid from the 9i catalog via rc_database
Do a restore
This is from memory ( on my blackberry) so you may want to consult the manual
