RE: help "cloning" a database

Rich Holland


It figures. As soon as I spend the time to compose a diatribe to oracle-l, I
figure out the problem...

The trick is this:

 SQL> recover database until cancel using backup controlfile;

Instead of this:

 SQL> recover database using backup controlfile until cancel;

If I enter CANCEL in the first case, I can then open the target with reset
logs. If I enter CANCEL in the second case, Oracle continues to expect redo
logs indefinitely.... why Oracle doesn't give me an error in the second case I
don't know.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone sent in the meantime!
