Why do you think you will be connecting to the prod db? Take a look at:

"You can use the RMAN DUPLICATE command to create a duplicate database ***from backups*** of the target database (primary database) while retaining the original target database. The duplicate database can be identical to the target database or contain only a subset of the tablespaces in the target database. The target site and the duplicate site can be on separate hosts or on the same host." Received on Thu May 15 2008 - 20:36:47 CDT
