Oracle Database - Please help restore after RAID controller corrupted some files

I have a server which runs a production Oracle database.  The RAID controller borked and took a few files with it.  After getting the O/S back up and running, the Oracle service tries to start, but I get the following error:

ORA-00214: control file 'CONTROL01.CTL' version 16371 inconsistent with file 'CONTROL02.CTL' version 16356

I have 3 control files.  I have tried deleting each of them individually, but that results in different errors, depending which I remove.  I have also tried copying 01 over the other two, as well as 02 and 03.  If I use 02 or 03 for all of them I get:

ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [kccpb_sanity_check_2], [16369], [16356], [0x000000000], [], [], [], []

If I use 01 for all of them I get:
ORA-00227: corrupt block detected in control file: (block 23, # blocks 1)
ORA-00202: control file: 'CONTROL03.CTL'

..strange to me that it throws the error in CONTROL03 instead of 01, but I guess it doesn't have to read them in alpha order.

Please help.

How can I get the Oracle database to mount?  

Thanks!

If it was just the contolfiles that were corrupted, you can rebuild them with a 'create controlfile' command.

I would not issue that unless you have a good idea of what all is affected.

I suggest you open a 'down system' SR with Oracle support.  They can walk you through everything step by step.

Could you provide more details on the 'create controlfile' command?

Thanks

I'm on mobile and can't confirm the link but check the docs.

Have you tried starting your database only with CONTROL02.CTL (that's seems to be only control file for which no error has been reported)?
