identifying rman backup pieces

i want to restore 30th sep end of the day backup of RMan.

How I do ensure that I do not miss even a single backup piece from RMAN.

When I tried with the TAG from v$backup_piece_details  it only gave me archive backup pieces

Can I get the queries to find the RMAN backup pieces including archives for a given date and also Rman commands

Regards
Ram

Hello,

First use the following RMAN command :
LIST BACKUP OF DATABASE;

Second, copy the TAG that you are interested in restoring.
Let's say this TAG is "TAG20140317T094905"

Third, use the command with the previous TAG it will restore everything you need
RESTORE DATABASE FROM TAG 'TAG20140317T094905';
or
RECOVER DATABASE FROM TAG 'TAG20140317T094905' ARCHIVELOG TAG 'TAGXXXXX'


Here are some usefull commands
============================
LIST BACKUP;
LIST BACKUP SUMMARY;
LIST INCARNATION;
LIST BACKUP BY FILE;
LIST BACKUP OF ARCHIVELOG ALL;
LIST BACKUP OF ARCHIVELOG FROM SEQUENCE 1437;
LIST COPY OF DATABASE ARCHIVELOG ALL;
LIST COPY OF DATAFILE 1, 2, 3;
LIST BACKUP OF DATAFILE 11 SUMMARY;
LIST CONTROLFILECOPY "/tmp/cntrlfile.copy";
LIST BACKUPSET OF DATAFILE 1;
crosscheck archivelog all;
crosscheck backup;
delete force obsolete;
