we have linux production server where it has got oracle apps and oracle db installed as single node. the os is oel 5.5. it has got a script which will take the backup of database folders (the script itself will shutdown the database) and once the backup is completed the database will start automatically.
the cold backup is stored in the same server in a sepatate location, everyday it will replace the backup files. the backup is stored as .tar.gz
presently in case if we need to restore the backup and test it we need to copy the same to another server and once the copying is done we need to tar separately. the time taken to copy and tar takes longer time.
is there a way that we can copy (which can copy faster) the tar file to another server (with same permission) and tar it simultaneously which takes lesser time.
i have got a test server as well with same os (oel 5.5)
