Yes, that was one of them. I looked up some notes on it:



...without RCAT, the FROM AUTOBACKUP clause is required RMAN starts searching backup media for file of c-<DBID>-YYYYMMDD-FF. then FE, FD, FC all the way to 00.

starts over at the previous day if not found

this can take a long time!

can be mitigated with MAXSEQ and MAXDAYS options

restore controlfile from autobackup maxdays 10 maxseq 20

can also just specify name go for c-<DBID>-YYYYMMDD-00 if you are desperate!
