2.Type the following code at the command prompt to load and mount the database you want to duplicate:

3.Create a duplicate database using RMAN. Type the following Oracle code to create the duplicate database:

DUPLICATE TARGET database for dupdbPFILE = / DUP / oracle / dbs /initDUPDB.oraNOFILENAMECHECK;Replace “dupdb” with the name of the duplicate database and replace the value “PFILE” with your file name. You can store the new duplicate file name in a local folder or a folder on the remote computer.
