Hi,

You ask a question you have the answer of in your logs...

Your backup piece is in your Flash Recovery Area :
>> C:\APP\MATHEW\FLASH_RECOVERY_AREA\ORCL\BACKUPSET\2011_03_25\... <<

In order to make sure you still have your backups, just use the 'list' command under RMAN :
LIST BACKUP;
You should see them listed there.

Then, to restore your backups :
1) start the db with nomount option
STARTUP NOMOUNT
2) then 'restore' and 'recover' in RMAN :
RESTORE DATABASE;
RECOVER DATABASE;
3) You can now open the database :
ALTER DATABASE OPEN RESETLOGS;

That's it.

Cheers,
P

You did notice the database not open message at the top and the fact there were no archive logs backed up.

This implies it performed a cold backup.  Without archive logs you cannot do a point in time recovery.

You're right ! Used to call both commands everyday, so I didn't pay attention...

No need for the 'RECOVER...' line.
