Simple Clone Process in 11i/R12


Oracle Applications 11i/R12 Cloning Process

In normal cloning process, we do archive the Source node then copy the archived files to the Target node then extract the archived files back.

If you want to speed up this process, you can follow this one:

Example: Ine One step, we have to copy the ORACLE_HOME form Source Node (Prod) to Target Node (Test).

On the Target node create the ORACLE_HOME directory if it does not exist:

$ mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/product/10.2.0./

On the Source node:

$ cd $ORACLE_HOME

$ tar cf – * | ssh TEST ‘(cd /u01/app/oracle/product/10.2.0./; tar xf – )’

on the Target node, you can check files are copying and extracting by giving:

$ cd /u01/app/oracle/product/10.2.0./db

$ ls -ltr
