RMAN-06813 During Cloning Pluggable Database in 12c CDB (Doc ID 2187150.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 02, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 12.1.0.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Issue Clarification:
============


RMAN duplicate fails with below


ERROR:
[...]
Skipping pluggable database PDB8
Skipping pluggable database PDB9
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-03002: failure of Duplicate Db command at 09/19/2016 11:27:55
RMAN-05501: aborting duplication of target database
RMAN-06813: could not translate pluggable database PDB10

Changes

1) In 12c multitenant duplicate / single PDB duplicate fails with RMAN-06813
2) one or more pluggable databases were dropped recently and until time which we specify for duplicate is recent time

Example:
We have 10 PDBs at time T1
We have taken continuous backup of this CDB (including all PDBS and daily backups), say Last backup at T2
We have dropped one PDB (PDB10), At time T4

We are doing duplicate of this CDB (single PDB --> example PDB5) until time T3 (which is the time between T$ and T2), here duplicate until time is (T4-x and T2+y)
duplicate fails with RMAN-06813 and error pointing to dropped PDB (in our case PDB10)
