I would like to have some inputs on RMAN backup that we are planning to perform for the database that has to be now discarded; and which may have have to be restored in distant future.
DB Ver: 10gR2
Backup mode: RMAN WITHOUT CATALOG(i.e. using controlfile for storing rman info)
From what I know(I might be wrong), that for duplicating the 10gR2 DB to another machine we have to have the target(original) database running and connected.
In my case we need to take the rman backup and then use the target db for fresh installation and hence the db will be deleted.
Any ideas on how this can be achieved in 10gR2??
