Cloning a database to an alternate host


You can use the clone create command to clone a database backup on an alternate host.

  • Create a profile or have an existing profile.

  • Create a full backup or have an existing database backup.

  • Create a clone specification or have an existing clone specification.

    1. To clone a database to an alternate host, enter the following command: smo clone create -backup-label backup_label_name-newsid new_sid-host target_host-label clone_label-commentcomment_text-profileprofile_name-clonespec full_path_to_clonespecfile

      Oracle does not let you run two databases with the same SID simultaneously on the same host. Because of this, you must supply a new SID for each clone. However, you can have a database on another host with the same SID.
