In every piece of online documentaion I see the first step to duplicating
a DB with RMAN says that you must use the orapwd utility to create
a password file.
While following each step in the arcticle above except creating the
orapwd file I was successful in creating the AUX DB.
Can somebody please explain why I would need the orapwd file? I am
obvisously missing something but not sure what.
Maybe you can provide an example as it pertains to the above mentioned article and show between what steps it would be accessed.
