I'm running into a problem trying to recover a test database
with a read only tablespace ASSETS_21 from an RMAN backup.

The restore runs fine and appears to restore the ASSETS_21.dbf
datafile (number 13 for the superstitious amongst you):

   RMAN> restore database check readonly force;
   restoring datafile 00013 to /data/oradata/ESDCWTST/ASSETS_21.dbf
   Finished restore at 16-APR-08

But when I do the recovery, I get the following error:

   RMAN> recover database check readonly;
   could not read file header for datafile 13 error reason 9
   RMAN-03002: failure of recover command at 04/16/2008 16:02:16
   RMAN-06094: datafile 1 must be restored

And when I try it from sqlplus I get:

   SQL> recover database until cancel using backup controlfile;
   ORA-00283: recovery session canceled due to errors
   ORA-01110: data file 13: '/data/oradata/ESDCWTST/ASSETS_21.dbf'
   ORA-01122: database file 13 failed verification check
   ORA-01110: data file 13: '/data/oradata/ESDCWTST/ASSETS_21.dbf'
   ORA-01206: file is not part of this database - wrong database id

Has anybody come across this before, or know what to do?  I'm probably
going to end up cloning a new copy from the live database, but it
would be nice to know what the problem was.
