I am trying to DUPLICATE a database for a online/hot backup set. The DUPLICATE will be on a different host than the TARGET. I have the Backup files and the Auxiliary instance is all set - I'm stuck on how to connect RMAN to the Target backup set so it can duplicate to the Auxiliary instance. I don't want to have to connect to the TARGET host - just want to use the backup file set from there. I can get the control, init param, pwd, listener, tnsnames - whatever from the Target - I just don't want to connect to the host - only the backup file set. Thanks.
