Unix Server A has database ufms509. This database is 530GB size. I want to clone/copy this database to Unix Server B. I have recovery catalog on both servers. I would like to know the exact RMAN commands from Unix server B, where I want to save the backups, as Server A does not ample space.

Sincerely,

KamaL Agnihotri

I do not have space to create a backup of my 530GB database on Server A. I would like to know the RMAN commands to create a backup on Server B.

A low level solution could be to mount a share from server B on server A. and then follow the link in 34141017

Im sure there is a there is a solution, you are not the first one who need to do stuff like this.

Did you consider my suggestion? That would solve your space issue on server A and get the data transfered to server B in one go. as far as i can see the link in 34141017 contains the needed information to do the trick on server B.

that a solution hasn't been offered for the last 14 days could be seen as a sign the people belive that you are actually testing the proposed solution and that it's a valid one.

Solution is there man. its just matter of implementation.

If you have shared storage available than go for that

If 500gb space is not available then go for "Transportable Tablespace". transfer database by transporting your tablespace one by one.

Do you have some sort of external storage? you can use that to move backup from one server to another.

Lots of possibility, you can think on that.
