I mad a full rman backup including controlfile. No catalog.
I then from the os command line removed all the dbf's and control files.
Now i'm trying to restore from the backup and getting the message
RMAN> restore database;
Starting restore at 09-JAN-09
allocated channel: ORA_DISK_1
channel ORA_DISK_1: sid=763 devtype=DISK
creating datafile fno=1 name=/u01/app/oracle/oradata/BB60/system01.dbf
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-03002: failure of restore command at 01/09/2009 13:34:25
ORA-01180: can not create datafile 1
ORA-01110: data file 1: '/u01/app/oracle/oradata/BB60/system01.dbf'
When I listed the backup i saw the system01.dbf was included in the backupset
What do i need to do before issuing the restore command ?
