Restore datafile from full RMAN backup

Wojciech Skrzynecki



I have a question about RMAN and recovery. In my product database I have
two files with the same name but other localizations. I use
duplication to prepare development environment on other server. Recently
after duplicating a big database (with the same name of files) error
RMAN-06136: ORACLE error from auxiliary database: ORA-19563: header
validation failed for file.
Now I know that problem concern double-name files. RMAN recovered two
files with the same name to the one catalog (Unix). I tried to move
one file to other location and create new controlfiles with correct
path but I got an error:
ORA-01110: data file 120: '/u01/oracle/oradata/DENT/OREM_IDX_41.dbf'
ORA-01110: data file 120: '/x09/oracle/oradata/DENT/ OREM_IDX_41.dbf''

My question - is it possible to recover only one datafile using RMAN to
the new location?
Very important is that file must be from the same time as my script to

set until time "2006-11-03 15:00:00";
allocate auxiliary channel ch1 type 'SBT_TAPE'
allocate auxiliary channel ch2 type 'SBT_TAPE'
set newname for datafile 120 to ''/u01/oracle/oradata/DENT/OREM_IDX_41.dbf';
set newname for datafile 129 to ''/u01/oracle/oradata/DENT/OREM_IDX_41.dbf'';


Recover one file takes me 10-20 minutes, while database restore takes
around 6 hours

Thanks for help
