Re: Restore datafile from full RMAN backup

Wojcieck,

I have a suggestion that will get you around this problem and maybe save
your career later.
DON'T HAVE TWO FILES WITH THE SAME FILE NAME. Rename one of them, which is
simple.
Someday someone (maybe a system administrator, maybe a junior DBA, maybe
you) will be moving files around and one file will get clobbered. Then
management will clobber somebody. Most shops forbid this practice, for good
reason.
