HP-UX to HP-UX is pretty simple.

You copy the files, change the init.ora, add an entry in /etc/orabab and do a few conversion steps.

Re: clonning oracle 9.2 database on HP-UX

Hi,

@SEP: this is a nice and very complete description (Link bookmarked:-) !

The procedure is very good, but is not a valid one, if cou want to use RMAN backup of both (source and target DB) with the same Catalog-DB. Both DBs will have the same DB-ID. If you like to use RMAN in this context, you need to re-incarnate the DB with RMAN and the target will get a new DB-ID then.

Do not know if this is important for you.

If you're going to rename your database it's smart to perform a few times:
"alter system switch logfile"
before copying the datafiles.

This will save you a lot of recovery trouble.

Only thing I miss in the link SEP gave.

Hi

Please check Metalink note id 18070.1
How to Make a Copy of a Database on the Same Unix Machine

and also have a look at this thread :

The advantage of cloning onto a different server is that you do not have to shut down the source instance during the cloning operation.
