How to restore a database via RMAN but different DB_NAME?
I am trying to restore a database from RMAN but using a different DB_NAME/SID. The 'new' database is called DEV and I want to restore from an RMAN backup. Unfortunately, there is another db on the server called PROD, and the OLD PROD database is unavailable, hence the restore from rman backups.
I have managed to restore the controlfile from rman, but when I try to mount this database, so I can restore the datafiles, it says ORA-01103: database name 'PROD' in control file is not 'DEV'
Thanks. Rgds. Sheryl
Unfortunatly the 'old' prod (target) database is unavailable, therefore I can't use the duplicate database in rman.
And as the old prod is unavailable (server down), I can't use the 'tried and tested' method of 'Hot backups', copying the datafiles across and re-creating the controlfile. I have to use the RMAN backups from tape.
