Snapdrive for Oracle Split off Cloned Database

Using Snapcentre for Oracle 3.4.1 P4 on Windows 2008 R2 (don't ask why! 🙂 ). Obviously SMO works by creating flex-clones in the underlying storage then presenting back to the OS as a new instance of oracle. It was indicated to me though that these clones of the DB could not be split out into a new standalone DB like you would when you split a flexclone off from it's parent.

 

Is that the case or can SMO clones be split?

Hello,

 

Snapcenter should be capable of creating a clone and splitting it as needed. You can review the below documentation for more details:
