Is it possible to restore from a hot backup that was taken prior to a database being shutdown. We had an RMAN hot backup running in archivelog mode. The database was shutdown and them some files are lost before it was restarted Isn't it possible to just point to the oldest controlfile that was taken during the last hot backup and restore from that?
