RE: RMAN restore from disk with files in a new location

Keith - I have studied this issue quite a bit. I have not heard of Andy's
solution, but it sounds great. I would pursue that first. You don't mention
your platform, but it looks like you are on Unix. I have found that you can
create a link to your backup location and reference that link in RMAN. Then
during recovery you point the link to the new location, and RMAN is fooled.
You might try that as your alternative solution. If you find Andy's solution
works, please let us know. Thanks.

It's been a while, but I think RMAN will recognize the environment variable 
BACKUP_DIR. Try setting this to the directory where you've located your 
backups and see if the restore will work.
