Symptoms

When RMAN duplicate is run from the standby as target to create a cascade standby RMAN creates datafiles for the new cascade standby as per the db_file_name_convert but is not able to convert the values for log files as per the parameter log_file_name_convert for SRL (standby redo log file), though it works for ORL (online redo log file).



If the cascade standby is on the same host then it overwrites the log files of the target standby database.

Following is the error RMAN logs at the end of duplicate:

When duplicated from the Primary database as target it worked fine

In this scenario the standby and the cascade standby are in the same host.
