I want to restore my database from server x to server y.

The control files on server x are named [$ORACLE_SID]_control01.ctl and [$ORACLE_SID]_control02.ctl.
We have an auto backup of the control files.

When I restore the control files on host y, (from autobackup) the restored controle files have other names: control01.ctl and control02.ctl. After the restore and recover (which goes well) the database does not start correctly.

SQL> ORACLE instance started.

You might be better off following one of the standard techniques for duplicating a database, there is a step-by-step description here in chapter 24,

Thanks, but we have a standard procedure/script voor backup and restore with RMAN. And this procedure is working for all other databases, only this one is the problem.

If you post your script here, with the output of what happens when you run it, perhaps someone can debug it for you.

ok, this is my restorescript

rman target / << EOF
set dbid $DBID
STARTUP FORCE NOMOUNT PFILE='/dbms/oracle/admin/$sid/pfile/init.ora'
RESTORE CONTROLFILE FROM '/dbms/oracle/${flash}_recovery_area/auto.restore.$ORACLE_SID/$ctrlfile2';
alter database mount;
catalog start with '/dbms/oracle/${flash}_recovery_area/auto.restore.$ORACLE_SID';
YES
run {
set until time "to_date('$dat $tijd','dd-mm-yyyy hh24:mi:ss')";
restore database;
recover database;
}
exit
EOF


sqlplus '/as sysdba' << EOF
alter database open resetlogs;
shutdown abort

exit
EOF

There is one obvious bug: you need to specify the pfile, or create an spfile, for your final startup.

update: and you do need to show what actually happens.

The pfile is /dbms/oracle/admin/$sid/pfile/init.ora, it is specified in this code
'STARTUP FORCE NOMOUNT PFILE='/dbms/oracle/admin/$sid/pfile/init.ora'

John meant this one:

sqlplus '/as sysdba' << EOF
alter database open resetlogs;
shutdown abort
startup
exit
EOF

Which is not required after your alter database open resetlogs;

I just found the problem and it was so simple... Thanks all for your help. Smile

The pfile on system y was wrong.

was:

control_files=("/data/coda/ctrl/control01.ctl", "/dbms/oracle/admin/coda/ctrl/control02.ctl")


correct is this, where xxx is $ORACLE_SID:

control_files=("/data/coda/ctrl/xxxx_control01.ctl", "/dbms/oracle/admin/coda/ctrl/xxxx_control02.ctl")

Thanks for the feedback. I recommend that you look into using a SPFILE rather than a pfile:
