I am planning to copy a dev database to a qa database.
I am asked to use cold backups as the mechanism. No Rman's.
The database is about 200GB and is in 817
The names of the dev and qa are in different hardware, same OS
what i have in mind is to copy df's to destination, recreate ctl files and redologs.. but i want to make sure, i have all steps in order to do this..
can anyone, please let me know in STEPS, to accomplish this, so i dont make any mistakes.. this is my first assignment here..
