This is a disaster recovery test. No catalog. Everything else is
backed up. Mount points may not be the same.

Production?? I assume this is a crisis.
You didn't mention your server. I'll assume Unix.
The key is whether you can put the RMAN backup file to the same

path where they were originally backed up to. In a pinch you can try
creating a link for the original location. Do you have a copy of the
control file taken after the backup? That will make it much easier. I'm
assuming that you backed the database up to disk. RMAN will want to
restore the data files to the original locations. If those locations are
unavailable you can tell RMAN to use a different location for each file.

You only need the dbid if you are using a catalog. Two
databases with the same dbid can't be registered in the same catalog.

I need to restore our production database to a new

not available. No catalog was used.

Can anyone point be to any instructions on doing this?
