Re: Recovery Scenario

We just did this, and you must be careful. We did a restore until cancel as 
we lost every disk in the pack, however this resulted in an incomplete 
recovery. we therefore had to open the database resetlogs. this is a oneway 
step. when you do this you then must perform a reset database in RMAN. also 
previous backups become useless so take 2 backups of the DB at this point 
for safe keeping.

 PS what about your online redos? Are they OK? How did the crash happen and 
what is the extent of the damage to the DB?
