Use the DUPLICATE command to duplicate a PDB to an existing CDB.

To duplicate a PDB to an existing CDB:

  • Ensure that the required prerequisites are met.
  • Review the limitations of duplicating a PDB to an existing CDB
  • Create the directories that store the duplicate database files on the destination CDB
  • Establish Oracle net connectivity between the source CDB and the destination CDB
  • Duplicate the PDB by using the DUPLICATE PLUGGABLE DATABASE command.

In this scenario, we have 2 CDBs

  • CDB18C which contains two PDBs
  • NEWCDB which is empty CDB

After the creating the connection between both the CDBs, we can run RMAN command


Let’s connect to NEWCDB to check whether the PDB is created or not.
