Problem with duplicate target database from active database

Hi all,
i try duplicate database from active database
- I have von target and auxiliary the same SYS Password
- tnsping wogks in both directions fine
- sqlplus to target and auxilairy works from both server
- Metalink Solution 1056174.1 not help
but in the Rman log become this error:

i do do :

ALLOCATE AUXILIARY CHANNEL d1 DEVICE TYPE DISK;
duplicate target database to XXXXX
from active database
DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT ('/XXXX/XXXX/XXXXXX','/XXXXX/XXXXXX/XXXXX/')
spfile
parameter_value_convert '/XXXX/','/XXXXX/'
set log_file_name_convert '/XXXXX/','/XXXXX/'
any Idea ?
Best Regards

Don't know if this will help, but I use the connect string below to connect, then run the command below. This is, of course, after the rman backup from the prod system has been copied to the flash_recovery_area of the aux database. All file paths are the same between the two systems. Works like a charm most nights. The local tnsnames file on the rman catalog server has working entries for @SDPROD, @rman and @SDSTB.

  • Rman clone duplicate database from active database

    Hi All,
    I read document saying that rman can duplicate database from active database (prod) to a remote server, so long as you configure listener and tnsname.
    I am working toward it.
    I met a problem, which is when i bring up auxiliary database in nomount mode, the listener service of that auxiliary database is in BLOCKED status, and throw out ora-12528 error when I rman auxiliary sys/[email protected] Isn't nomount mode the mode which auxiliary db is supposed to be in?
    (ora-12528: TNS:listener: all appropriate instances are blocking new connections)
    Thanks,
    milic

    You may have run into the same problem like I did recently:
    The (UR=A) clause in tnsnames.ora is intended to work with a dynamically registered handler so the use of SERVICE_NAME versus SID is preferred.
    ORA-12528: TNS listener BLOCKED - trying to duplicate database
    Also for further problems:
    RMAN 11gR2 duplicate database ORA-17627 ORA-01017 RMAN-03009 ORA-17628

  • Duplicate database from active database in 11g?

    Does anyone know if it's possible to clone a database from stby by issuing RMAN duplicate database FROM ACTIVE DATABASE command in 11g?
    I know it's possible from primary to create stby.
    Thanks in advance

    Hello;
    Script has to be run from auxiliary.
    Great details, but what I don't see is how you connect in RMAN.
    Example
    Start RMAN
    $ORACLE_HOME/bin/rman target=sys/@recover2 auxiliary=sys/@reclone
    Recovery Manager: Release 11.2.0.2.0 - Production on Wed Feb 22 14:50:31 2012
    Copyright (c) 1982, 2009, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    connected to target database: RECOVER2 (DBID=3806912436)
    connected to auxiliary database: RECLONE (not mounted)Nothing in your tnsnames or listener jumps out as wrong. I copied them into my text editor and compared against my working ones.
    Generally for active duplication I start the future standby on a pfile NOMOUNT.
    Auxiliary Instance Initialization Parameters Needed :
    DB_NAME
    CONTROL_FILES
    DB_BLOCK_SIZE
    ( add extra parameters like DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT and LOG_FILE_NAME_CONVERT instead of using the SET command - clean up standby spfile right after duplication )
    Then start RMAN and finally run a single line duplication command.

    Pl do not post duplicates - Issue in configuring Standby Database from Active database in 11g by RMAN

  • Failing by duplicate database from active database

    Hallo,
    i'm working with 11g on one server and want to duplicate a database in active mode.
    what i do:
    i create a new password-file using orapwd - orapwNEW
    i create a new entry for ORANEW in tnsnames.ora and listener.ora
    then i execute rman TARGET sys/[email protected] AUXILIARY sys/[email protected]
    then rman> DUPLICATE TARGET DATABASE TO NEW FROM ACTIVE DATABASE SPFILE NOFILENAMECHECK;
    then i've got the failure RMAN-06403, RMAN-04006, ORA-01034
    whats the problem?
    thanks in advance.

    i think it is the problem that rman can't connect to the auxiliary db.
    but what i must do?
    in the documentation i found that:
    The PASSWORD FILE option specifies that RMAN should copy the password file to the destination host. RMAN automatically copies the server parameter file to the destination host, starts the auxiliary instance with the server parameter file, copies all necessary database files and archived redo logs over the network to the destination host, and recovers the database. Finally, RMAN opens the database with the RESETLOGS option to create the online redo log.

  • How reliable is DUPLICATE .. FROM ACTIVE DATABASE ?

    Version : 11.2.0.3
    Platform : OEL 6
    DUPLICATE .. FOR STANDBY FROM ACTIVE DATABASE doesn't involve taking any RMAN Backup files. Right? Just transferring data across the network.
    Given that I have a good network throughput, how reliable it is to use this feature to create a standby from a 2 TeraByte Primary ? The standby DB will be created in our Data Center located 50KM away from the Primary Site.

The standby DB will be created in our Data Center located 50KM away from the Primary Site.2TB is not a small database to perform Duplicate from ACTIVE Database, Yes as you said there is no more need of backups from 11g if you use ACTIVE database.
    Do not consider of the distance, Consider the bandwidth speed between two sites and how fast data can transfer and how stable it is.
    You can test the network speed by transferring any one of the big file using SCP also, On top of that you can estimate how much time it can complete and ensure there is no network glitches/interruptions to avoid failure duplicate.

  • Creating a duplicated database from active database

    I'm having problem trying to duplicate a database from a target database (PROD) to the auxiliary one (AUX).

  • RMAN duplicate target database from active database - performance problem

    Hello. I’m running into a major performance problem when trying to duplicate a database from a target located inside our firewall to an auxiliary located outside our firewall. Both target and auxiliary are located in the same equipment room just on different subnets. Previously I had the auxiliary located on the same subnet as the target behind the firewall and duplicating a 4.5T database took 12 hours. Now with the auxiliary moved outside the firewall attempting to duplicate the same 4.5T database is estimated to exceed 35 hours. The target is a RAC instance using ASM and so is the auxiliary. Ping, tnsping, traceroutes to and from target and auxiliary all indicate no problem or latency. Any ideas on things to consider while hunting for this elusive performance decrease?
    Thanks in advance.

    It would obviously appear network related. Have you captured any network/firewall metrics? Are all components set to full duplex? Would it be possible to take the firewall down temporarily and then test the throughput? Do you encounter any latency if you were to copy a large file across the subnets?
    You may want to check V$RMAN_BACKUP_JOB_DETAILS, V$BACKUP_SYNC_IO or V$BACKUP_ASYNC_IO when the backup is running.

  • Problem with "Capture Server Model from the Database"

    I've installed Oracle-Developer-Suite 10g and Designer 9.0.4.5.6. The repository databse is Oracle 10g and the application database is Oracle 9i (about 700 tables for the application). After I started the Designer Editor, I got the follwoing message:
    "No network notification service has been configured for this Repository instance. A desktop-only notification has been started."
    What does it mean? What's wrong with the configuration? How can I avoid this problem?
    Then I tried to "Capture Server Model from the Database". It took hours to read the data from the database. After reading the data, the following message occurs:
    "138 overlaps could not be eliminated by AutoLayout as there is insufficient room to layout the items. Select a large area and retry"
    I can not save the uncommited data into the repository.

    1. Designer 9i was made to capture 9i DB functionality. So no it will not capture full 11 DB functionality.
    2. Yes I have had some problems capturing from an 11DB and have written a bug on it.

  • Duplicate database for standby from active database

    I'm running 11.1.0.7. Has anybody ever duplicated a standby database from active database and the active database being a physical standby open for read only with active dataguard instead of a primary dataguard database?
    The key here is location. The primary is located at a remote site where network bandwidth is inadequate for fast copy of database. The active standby database is at same site where I would like to build the new physical standby.

    I don't think you can, because "You cannot CONNECT RMAN to the standby database and then use DUPLICATE ... FOR STANDBY to create an additional standby database " and you can't fake it out by getting a controlfile from the primary because the controlfile has to match up with the backup and can't be a standby.
    But I'm wondering if you could failover to the standby, duplicate, fail back, then... oh well, that will never work either, incarnation problem.
    Snapshot standby? Could one back it up, then flashback restored new standby, change dbid? I would guess there would be an SCN problem, but don't know enough about it.

  • RMAN 11gR2 DUPLICATE TARGET FOR STANDBY FROM ACTIVE DATABASE - Issue -HELP

    First question.
    Can primary and standby database have the same SID name?
    As I recall it is yes.
    I believe they must have different GLOBAL or DB_UNIQUE_NAME?
    Anyway, RMAN I believe is telling me it is having problems copying control file on first and dies.

    Hi,
    Permissions Issue on STANDBY machine?First problem I see is the sysdba password must be the same on both sides (target and auxiliary dbs).
    From the documentation.
    The source database and auxiliary instances must use the same SYSDBA password, which means that both instances must have password files. You can
    create the password file with a single password so you can start the auxiliary instance and enable the source database to connect to it.Check all prereqs for the standby db duplicate here.

    should I re-run the command with:
    SET UNTIL SEQUENCE 64713 THREAD 1

    This fails saying that "ORA-12528: TNS:listener: all appropriate instances are blocking new connections" which is quite normal given that the listener is havig a handle in BLOCKED state for this AUXDB as it is in NOMOUNT state.
    Could you please help me on how to proceed?
    One option can be to create the controlfile manually and mount the instance before doing the duplicate. I hope Rman can continue from there.
    Another option is to go for backup based duplicate.
    Is there any other way to go?
    Provide static registration on AUXILIARY side for your auxiliary instance and try again.For example change listener.ora file as
    SID_LIST_LISTENER =
      (SID_LIST =
        (SID_DESC =
          (GLOBAL_DBNAME = AUXDB)
          (ORACLE_HOME = <your oracle home>)
          (SID_NAME = AUXDB)
    LISTENER =
      (DESCRIPTION =
        (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = <auxiliary host/ip>)(PORT = 1521))
      )And restart listener on auxiliary host then try again
