Re: 9i RMAN restore to a different server with a backup from dataguard env

thanks Jerome.

I was able to restore the controlfile from the standby controlfile . but
while I try to mount .it complains.

RMAN> alter database mount;

RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-03002: failure of alter db command at 10/04/2007 10:19:41
ORA-01666: controlfile is for a standby database

please advise.
