dbms_dnfs and clone.pl

If you are using to use dbms_dnfs to clone your database as described in MOS note 1210656.1 or on Tim's Hall blog - Direct NFS (DNFS) Clonedb in Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (Patchset 11.2.0.2) and your database version is 11.2.0.3 there is one additional step which is not covered by clone.pl script and has to be done manually.

In 11.2.0.2 it was enough to run crtdb.sql and dbren.sql scripts generated by clone.pl but this is what happen when you will run dbren.sql on 11.2.0.3
SQL> !cat dbren.sql

After that operation I found following errors in alert log

Fri Mar 29 13:31:20 2013
ERROR: clonedb parameter not set. Make sure clonedb=TRUE is set

Let's check parameter 

SQL> show parameter clone

NAME TYPE VALUE
------------------------------------ ----------- ------------------------------
clonedb boolean FALSE



I have changed that parameter in init.ora and restarted instance.

SQL> show parameter clone

NAME TYPE VALUE
------------------------------------ ----------- ------------------------------
clonedb boolean TRUE

PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

Now it is working again so time to come back to other tests with cloning.
