Re: Any way to force RMAN to skip TTS self-containment check?

We had the same issue and resolved as well by not connecting to the target, just the catalog.
Our backups are on tape though, so that should not be a show stopper.

connect catalog <rman_user>/<password>_at_<catalog> connect auxiliary /
set echo on;
run {
set until scn <scn number>;
set dbid <dbid>;
allocate auxiliary channel ch1 type sbt parms 'ENV=(TDPO_OPTFILE=<path>dr.opt)';
duplicate database <prod> to <test>
skip tablespace
