I know about Metalink Note 15390.1. The complication I am having is that there is intially two databases on the same box with the same SID. DB1 was restored to other mount points in order to create DB2. I now need to startup DB2 so I created a script to create a controlfile with the new directory structure and I get the error below. I don't want to start it up as DB1 and run "Alter database rename file..." because I don't want to accidentally mess up the original DB1. Has anyone done this before?
