Hi there,
Just wondering if anyone can help me out with an issue...
I'm trying to clone our production db to our test db, however, using the EM gui, I'm stuck on choosing the Desitnation Oracle Home...when I enter in the host of the Test environment, I get an error stating that the target is not found in the target list managed by Oracle Enterprise Manager. Is there a way to add the test environment in to the production EM? Or am I going about it the wrong way?

I've attached a screenshot of the error...
 
I've taken the Oracle 11GR1 Administration I Workshop, but the Clone Database part will be in Administration II, which I will take in Nov. Apparently the Test users can't wait that long...lol...
Please let me know if you need addition info....

Thanks for your help!

I would not add the test database to anything production.

I'm not an OEM user but you should be able to get the location of the files for the clone and copy them over to the test OEM system and import/recover from them.

I believe OEM is actually using RMAN to do this task.  Works case, spend a little time with the RMAN command line to recover/restore.

There are a lot of links on using RMAN to clone a database:
