RE: RMAN duplicate RAC to single instance - how to not duplicate redo threads and temp tablespace

This is attempting to create one redo group each for two instances. You must have at least two redo groups per instance - as Kathryn suggested.

Subject: RE: RMAN duplicate RAC to single instance - how to not duplicate redo threads and temp tablespace
I know I can do this post duplicate (as you have indicated) but I really want to do it as part of the duplicate so that the redo logs dont get created if they dont have to be, and the TEMP tablespace doesn't get created if it doesn't have to.
I have a good suggestion from Chris Taylor on how to do this with the temp tablespace, and I am trying Marcins idea with the syntax for the redo logs, but I just keep getting the following error
RMAN-06136: ORACLE error from auxiliary database: ORA-01518: CREATE DATABASE must specify more than one log file
I am using the syntax
duplicate database PROD to TEST pfile='pfile.TEST' backup location='/backup/PROD' LOGFILE INSTANCE 'TEST1' GROUP 1 ('+DATA_TEST','+DATA_TEST') SIZE 1000M, INSTANCE 'TEST2' GROUP 2 ('+DATA_TEST','+DATA_TEST') SIZE 1000M;
Thanks for your help guys.

> I do this all the time. Obviously, you cannot "skip" the redo or undo for any instance and still perform recovery, but you can duplicate the database and when it is done do (for a two-instance RAC database clone to an exclusive database)):
> alter database disable thread 2;
> alter database drop logfile group 7;
> alter database drop logfile group 8;
> drop tablespace UNDOTBS2 including contents and datafiles; ...

> contents and datafiles; create temporary tablespace TEMP tempfile size
> 1024M; alter database default temporary tablespace TEMP; drop
> tablespace TMPTMP including contents and datafiles;
