    Hi guys,
    I am new to db administration and I am trying to clone from Prodution instance to test on ORACLE 11g. OS is LINUX RED HAT. My major problem here is what the .dbf files are actually and how to copy these .dbf files to test using command line scp . An example wouldl be most beneficial. Please I would really appreciate it if anyone can help me here.
    there are two questions here please: 1. what are .dbf files and 2. how do i use scp to copy these files at once to test instance?

    -Thank You.
