Thanks for the suggestion . Actaully I already do the point in time recovery for the complete db . I was guessing if RMAN has got some cute stuff which can do tablesapce PIT on fly . It might check for the data integrity and then do the PIT recovery for the tablesapce . This tablespace is indepenedent .


  You R doing a NO NO.

  Incomplete Tablespace recovery... REALLY... now .. Ask youself ... If I recovery a tablespace to a point in time   where does that leave the rest of my database...

  You are breakin the fundamental rules.. Point in time Recovery for a tablespace is more complicated because   you have to recover the entire backup to a point in time... and then use the plug in a tablespace method to   get that into your orginal database...

  Hope that rings some bells.

    I am testing incomlete tablespace recovery using rman . I dropped a table at 21-apr-2003 at 8:10 . Using following script to reocery the tablespace. Script does work . But I am not able to see dropped table .     Why is it not recovering until time 8:03 .     Any Idea ?

    run {
    SQL "ALTER SESSION SET NLS_DATE_FORMAT=''DD-MON-YYYY HH24:MI:SS''";     set until time '21-apr-2003 08:03:00';     sql "alter tablespace akdata offline temporary";     allocate channel ch1 type disk;
    restore tablespace akdata;
    recover tablespace akdata ;
    release channel ch1;
    sql "alter tablespace akdata online";
