We have had a practice at our site of creating development and
staging databases by copying a cold backup to another system.
We then edit the output from "backup controlfile to trace" to rename the =

database and relocate the data files and restart
the database with the resulting script.  This means that a number of
our databases, mostly on different machines, have the same DBID.
So far this has not caused us any problems.  Are we running any
risks here?
