Question: Do you still need to manually create an auxiliary instance with 10g r2 when duiplicating a database.

Point in time & duplication have a lot in common. See this UR:


"Oracle Database 10g removes some of the manual work associated with the use of tablespace point-in-time recovery. You no longer need to create the Oracle auxiliary instance manually; rather, RMAN creates the auxiliary instance for you, performs the TSPITR, and then removes the auxiliary instance."

But, everywhere I look it says you need to create one? Is this true? If yes, it makes it MUCH easier. Received on Sat Aug 30 2008 - 19:44:15 CDT
