In general backup and restore of Oracle databases (for all editions i am   aware of - including Oracle XE) works pretty well, including the scenario of restore to different host. The process itself is well documented and can be looked up here Even the installation of Oracle XE includes restore of rman backup made on the different hosts as one of the final steps. If it doesn't work in your particular scenario, then your original remark  >>> It seems the backup and restore method does not work. can't be considered as professional problem description - nobody here can/will guess, what could you have done wrong. It means, to get some valueable advice, you need to provide detailed explanation, how you made backup, how you made recovery and what exactly seems not to work. If you would compare your actions with actions described in the documentation, it is very likely, you discover yourself, what you did wrong. If not - and recovery is still not working - then it is very likely, you'll see some errors propagated by oracle - either in the output from rman or in alert.log of your databases or in some other trace files. In that case investigation of those errors may be very helpful as well - they usually have some identifiers (like ORA-12560) which can be looked up again in the Oracle documentation After reading of error description often one can understand, what is going wrong, if it doesn't help - you still can post them here and maybe somebody can help you.
