Hi Chris, I've never seen requirements like that so never had to deal with it myself and haven't researched it. I'm interested to see if anyone will come up with a better solution, but I think you may have to use a combination of RMAN backups for the system and app2 tablespaces, and datapump metadata_only exports for the app1 tablespaces. I know that's not much help, and probably not what you were hoping to hear, but hopefully it at least serves as some validation that you're on the right track. Hopefully some others on the list will chime in to validate it too, or maybe come up with better ideas. That said, it shouldn't be too complicated to implement the RMAN/datapump combo - do you have some questions or concerns about doing that?
