Hello friends,

I have used RMAN DUPLICATE command to restore a single instance database to
RAC instance database or Single instance database in another server.

Is there any disadvantage of RMAN Duplicate as compared to Database CLONING

I found RMAN Duplicate very easy and can restore upto the latest Sequence
number/SCN as of the Source database, whereas Cloning can not be done to
restore upto the latest Sequence number.

Looking forward to your comments,
