Recover database to a different host using legato & RMAN

Create the directories where datafiles will be restored. Set up the OFA structure on new host and copy the init.ora, config.ora files. Create the link in ORACLE_HOME/dbs directory for init.ora file. Add entry in /etc/oratab and /etc/ORACLE.PROFILE for the database. Change init.ora and config.ora to reflect new directories. If link is not created then startup_pfile parameter should be specified to give the location of parameter file to be used Create a password file for this new instance and specify password for internal. Create symbolic link for the old online redo log directory to point to new online redo log directory.
Rman scipt should be as folows for latest database backup restore.

Unix Shell Script:
today=`date +%y%m%d%H%M`
export ORACLE_HOME=/oracle/app/oracle/product/8.0.4
export PATH=/users/oracle/bin:/oracle/app/oracle/bin:/oracle/app/oracle/product/8.0.4/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/bin/X11:/usr/dt/bin:/usr/local/bin:.
export NLS_LANG=american

svrmgrl << EOF
connect internal
startup nomount restrict
rman target internal/sys rcvcat rman/rman@rcat1 cmdfile restore_test804.txt
svrmgrl << EOF
connect internal

Following points need to be taken note of:

RMAN Script:
run {
set newname for datafile '/sales1/oradata/TEST804/TEST804_system01.dbf' to '/sm1/oradata/TEST804/TEST804_system01.dbf';
set archivelog destination to '/sm1/oradata/TEST804';
allocate channel t1 type 'sbt_tape'
parms 'ENV=(NSR_SERVER=host_b,NSR_CLIENT=host_a)';
allocate channel d2 type disk;
set until time 'Mar 18 1999 18:40:00';
restore controlfile to '/sm1/oradata/TEST804/control01.ctl';
replicate controlfile from '/sm1/oradata/TEST804/control01.ctl';
sql 'alter database mount';
restore (database);
switch datafile all;
