0. Overview

It is a new feature in Oracle 11g where cloning is done from one database to another database without any outage or downtime of the source (Primary) database.

Earlier we use to clone the database using cold back or rman backup. But RMAN Active duplication feature allows a database to be duplicated directly from its live source database instead of using its backup.

RMAN directly reads the data from the database using source (Primary) database CONTROLFILE.

3. Copy password file/initBR8DEV.ora to auxiliary side

[oracle@rac1 ~]$ scp initBR8DEV.ora oracle@rac2:/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0.4/db_1/dbs
initBR8DEV.ora                 100%  789     0.8KB/s   00:00
[oracle@rac1 ~]$

[oracle@rac1 dbs]$ pwd
/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1/dbs
[oracle@rac1 dbs]$ scp orapwBR8PROD oracle@rac2:/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0.4/db_1/dbs
orapwBR8PROD                    100% 1536     1.5KB/s   00:00
[oracle@rac1 dbs]$

[oracle@rac2 dbs]$ mv orapwBR8PROD orapwBR8DEV
[oracle@rac2 dbs]$ ls -ltr orapwBR8DEV
-rw-r----- 1 oracle oinstall 1536 Nov 23 13:56 orapwBR8DEV
[oracle@rac2 dbs]$


4. Create required directories (On the auxiliary host)

[oracle@rac2 ~]$ mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/admin/BR8DEV/adump
[oracle@rac2 ~]$ mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle
[oracle@rac2 ~]$


5. Add oratab entry (On the auxiliary host)

[oracle@rac2 ~]$ cat /etc/oratab | grep -i BR8DEV
BR8DEV:/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0.4/db_1:N
[oracle@rac2 ~]$


6. Add both TNS Entries on both sides (***Mandatory)

RAC1:

BR8DEV =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = rac2.rajasekhar.com)(PORT = 1522))
    (CONNECT_DATA =
      (SERVER = DEDICATED)
      (SERVICE_NAME = BR8DEV.rajasekhar.com)
    )
  )

BR8PROD =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = rac1.rajasekhar.com)(PORT = 1521))
    (CONNECT_DATA =
      (SERVER = DEDICATED)
      (SERVICE_NAME = BR8PROD.RAJASEKHAR.COM)
    )
  )

RAC2:

BR8DEV =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = rac2.rajasekhar.com)(PORT = 1522))
    (CONNECT_DATA =
      (SERVER = DEDICATED)
      (SERVICE_NAME = BR8DEV.rajasekhar.com)
    )
  )


BR8PROD =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = rac1.rajasekhar.com)(PORT = 1521))
    (CONNECT_DATA =
      (SERVER = DEDICATED)
      (SERVICE_NAME = BR8PROD.RAJASEKHAR.COM)
    )
  )


7. Static Registration on LISTENER (On the auxiliary host)

On RAC2 – Add below entry to listener.ora on auxiliary side

SID_LIST_LISTENER =
  (SID_LIST =
      (SID_DESC =
      (SID_NAME = BR8DEV)
      (ORACLE_HOME = /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0.4/db_1)
