Create duplicate database using rman

You want to use RMAN to create a duplicate database on the same server by using RMAN backups.

Source database name is MYTEST

Target (duplicate) database name is MYDB

This is the simple steps to create a duplicate database

You can read from here http://mohamedazar.wordpress.com/2010/05/25/create-duplicate-database/

Step 1: Configure Listener.ora and tnsnames.ora files

tnsnames.ora file

MYTEST =
(DESCRIPTION =
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = localhost.localdomain)(PORT = 1521))
(CONNECT_DATA =
(SERVER = DEDICATED)
(SERVICE_NAME = mytest)
)
)

MYDB =
(DESCRIPTION =
(ADDRESS_LIST =
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = localhost.localdomain)(PORT = 1521))
)
(CONNECT_DATA =
(SERVICE_NAME = mydb)
)
)

listener.ora file

SID_LIST_LISTENER =
(SID_LIST =
(SID_DESC =
(SID_NAME = PLSExtProc)
(ORACLE_HOME = /home/oracle/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1)
(PROGRAM = extproc)
)
(SID_DESC =
(SID_NAME = mytest)
(ORACLE_HOME = /home/oracle/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1)
(SID_NAME = mytest)
)
(SID_DESC =
(SID_NAME = mydb)
(ORACLE_HOME = /home/oracle/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1)
(SID_NAME = mydb)
)
)

LISTENER =
(DESCRIPTION_LIST =
(DESCRIPTION =
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = localhost.localdomain)(PORT = 1521))
)
)

Step 2: create pfile for target database from source database

SQL> create pfile from spfile;

File created.

Step 3: modified parameter file for target database (duplicate) here log_file_name_convert and db_file_name_convert and control file location is important, further your choice.

*.audit_file_dest=’/home/oracle/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1/admin/mydb/adump’
*.compatible=’10.2.0.1.0′
*.db_block_size=8192
*.db_domain=”
*.db_file_multiblock_read_count=16
*.db_name=’mydb’
*.control_files=’/home/oracle/oracle/product/10.2.0/oradata/mydb/control01.ctl’,'/home/oracle/oracle/product/10.2.0/oradata/mydb/control02.ctl’,'/home/oracle/oracle/product/10.2.0/oradata/mydb/control03.ctl’
*.db_file_name_convert=’/home/oracle/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1/oradata/mytest’,'/home/oracle/oracle/product/10.2.0/oradata/mydb’
*.log_file_name_convert=’/home/oracle/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1/oradata/mytest’,'/home/oracle/oracle/product/10.2.0/oradata/mydb’
*.db_recovery_file_dest=’/home/oracle/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1/flash_recovery_area’
*.db_recovery_file_dest_size=2147483648
*.dispatchers=’(PROTOCOL=TCP) (SERVICE=mydbXDB)’
*.job_queue_processes=10
*.open_cursors=300
*.pga_aggregate_target=94371840
*.processes=150
*.remote_login_passwordfile=’EXCLUSIVE’
*.sga_target=285212672
*.undo_management=’AUTO’
*.undo_tablespace=’UNDOTBS1′

Step 4: Create password file

[oracle@localhost ~]$orapwd file=orapwmydb password=oracle entries=5

Step 5: start your target database nomount stage

[oracle@localhost ~]$ export ORACLE_SID=mydb
[oracle@localhost ~]$ rlwrap sqlplus

Join cases between related tables in data computing and analytics

Related computing can be: Inner join or outer join. The outer join can be further divided into left join, right join, and full join. With esProc, such kinds ofrelated computing can be easily implemented. In the discussion below, we will introduce the join operations with some examples using the table emp and table sOrder.

Table structure:

The table emp stores the employee data table, in which the…

Code Examples of In-Memory Grouping for more efficient data computing and analytics

It is convenient to realize some common in-memory grouping with esProc, such as, equal grouping, alignment grouping and enumeration grouping. They are to be illustrated with the following examples.

Equal grouping 

Grouping basis of equal grouping is certain fields (or computed columns derived from fields) within a data set. Each group is a subset of original data set.

Case description: Group sales orders by the year. …
