Duplicate Database Scenario

Last Modified: 2008-02-01

Just after some advise really.

We have a live server A which runs RMAN and stores all generated files on server B.

Recently we have created a duplicate database (via RMAN) on server C. Server C used the RMAN files stored on server B.

Server C is in nomount mode, but is it possible to use RMAN on server C to just "restore" the database (i don't want to keep running duplicate). The idea being that server C has access to the backup files on B and can then restore itself. I presume server C just needs to know the location of the backup logs on B, as it does not ever need to be in archivelog mode - (if it was ever mounted).

Will the above work ?
