RE: RMAN Recovery without Catalog

I totally agree with Tanel (who doesn't).
On Unix I've found that you can create a link to the backup location on =
your
production server, then on your test server create the same link, and =
put
the RMAN backup pieces in that location. This is the best way I've come =
up
with to fool RMAN on the test server recovery.

It will read the controlfile you copied and get the backupset locations =
from
there - so it'll get the backupsets from the same directory name where =
you
used to back them up. It won't log on to your original host_A or =
anything,
you have to make this directory available on your host_B as well (using =
NFS
for example).

And the database files will be restored exactly to the same directories =
as
they've used to be in the source database, but you can change the =
locations
using SET NEWNAME command before restoring in RMAN.
