10G Database Restore to New Server from Backup

I am a Sr. SQL Server DBA but brand new to Oracle. I have been given a task by my management to perform a backup from our production server and restore it on a brand new server to simulate a disaster. Our environment is Windows 2003 Server and Oracle 10g database. I am having allot of difficulty understanding the process of recovering from a backup to a new server only using the backup files. This is a fairly simplistic task in SQL Server but the process in Oracle is in many shades gray. Please provide me a process of restoring just a backup to a new windows server. The database is in archive mode. Please e-mail me your response at sqldatapro@yahoo.com ASAP, Thanks Boatloads! Sincerely, Craig

Hi

you may want to use the DUPLICATE instruction of RMAN:

and then

Good luck
