12.2 RMAN Cross-Platform Transport of PDB into Destination CDB (Doc ID 2308210.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 18, 2017

Applies to:

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


Using RMAN, Pluggable database (PDBs) can be transported and plugged in to a destination multitenant container database (CDB) which is on a different platform than the source CDB. In addition to backup of the PDB, RMAN also copies the metadata required to plug the PDB into the destination CDB. The source CDB and the destination CDB must use the same endian format.

Below steps show migration of closed PDB from source platform Solaris (Big Endian) to AIX (Big Endian)
