You are already going through the edit on the controlfile.  Why not just
rename the database at the same time?
If not someone will surely mess up your production database, thinking
they are connected to the test version.

Subject: Duplicate DBIDs

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 =3D

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?
