Applies to:

Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version: 8.1.7.4 to 10.2.0.4 - Release: 8.1.7 to 10.2
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

How to use RMAN to move one, several or all  datafiles from one raw device/filesystem to another and parallelise the process where >1 file is being moved.

The examples in this note look at moving files from one raw device to another but the same method is used regardless of where you are moving the file to; if moving to a new filesystem, simply specify a filename instead of a raw device name.
