Jason,Just to point out that the OP asked how to move the controlfile and made no mention of an rman backup. If you try the command you sent without one youjust get the following error.RMAN-00571: =========================================================== RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS =============== RMAN-00571: ===========================================================RMAN-03002: failure of restore command at 05/23/2008 11:12:34 ORA-19607: +DATA/itest_control02.ctl is an active control fileActually giving this a bit more thought I think your command will fail evenwith a backup in place and should read RMAN>restore controlfile to '<NEW LOCATION>' from '<BACKUP LOCATION>' Regards, Ian
