Connecting to target test database instance  After restoring.

sql> recover database using backup control file until cancel;

it will ask for the archive file with auto or cancel
first type cancel.
Then you should get the message media recovery cancelled.
if you doesn't get this message then you need to apply the archives to open the database
Then  first transfer the archive log files from production server to test database  server

Then issue the same command under the target instancce
sql>recover database using backup control file until cancel;

Then apply the archive file now with the path(as we tranfer the files from production to target) mentioned
such as

'/ora...../archive1000.dbf'

Apply all the archives.

Using the same procedure
when you type  cancel you should get as media recovery cancelled.
then you can open the database with   alter database open reset logs;

Let me know if you require any more infomation

One more thing is if you want to apply the archives in auto mode.

Then first set you archive destination path
log_archive_dest  to which the archives are transferred from production.

Then you can use auto [type auto] instead of saying the file path
'/ora../arcive100.dbf'

You need to pull the necessary files off of tape first.  If you put them back where they belong a normal recovery will locate them.

If not, you will be asked for their location when recovery needs them.
