I have a data guard primary database in Oracle 188.8.131.52. It is backed up with
RMAN, via CommVault. I want to do a test restore to a non-data guard database.
The problem I'm having is that when I do the restore, it keeps trying to
create the files on the secondary and fails because the directory doesn't
exist. I know there has to be a way to do this, but I can't find it in any of
the RMAN documentation.
What I'm doing is connect to the target database, which is open nomount. Then
set the dbid to the source database, allocate the channels, and do a duplicate
database. I think what's happening is that it's bringing the control files
from the source and then it gets confused because the control files know about
the secondary database.
