UTF8 / AL16UTF16 database rman duplication question.

Last Modified: 2020-02-03
I have a db (SOURCE) that is Oracle Enterprise Edition, and its national character set UTF8.

I have an Oracle Database Appliance on which I will create an Oracle EE DB (TARGET) to duplicate (RMAN) my source DB to, and during the creation of it I am presented with the option to choose either UTF8 or AL16UTF16 as my national character set.

Do they have to match? Both UTF8 for the duplication process to work?
