But why would you go that route ? and disturb scheme of things RMAN copy command is simple and non-intrusive and most important standby database dont ahev to play catch up with primary
I know, every backup/clone/etc.. here I do with RMAN.
Unfortunately on this particular server we have no space for an rman backup (1.2T) therefore I have mounted the data files (mp) unto the target server where I can copy to other locations, create the controlfile and start the clone (like the old, olD, oLD, OLD procedure to clone databases)...
Thanks for your help!
