This parameter defines the name of the sapdata home directory for the database copy. You must set this parameter if you want to make a database copy on remote disk using BRBACKUP, that is, backup_dev_type = stage_copy|stage_standby.

Syntax: stage_db_home = <dir>

Default:  value of new_db_home parameter

UNIX: <dir> is the new SAP database directory, /oracle/<NEW_SID>

Windows: <dir> is the new SAP database directory, <drive>:\oracle\<NEW_SID>

With Windows, the sapdata directories can be distributed across several drives. When making a database copy, you can specify a target drive for each drive by using m|-mode. If you do not specify a target drive, all files are copied to the directory defined in the parameter.
