Was that a normal shutdown?  

Did you include the phrase "using backup controlfile"?

Hi all,

I have a 9i on Windows2003 with no backup.

Database was open while drive where redo logs resided was gone. So I lost all redo logs.

I shutdown d/b, mounted it, backed up controlfile to trace.

Recreated control file, but when I try to open resetlogs d/base I receive an error:  

ORA-01194: file 1 needs more recovery to be consistent

ORA-01110: data file 1: 'D:\ORACLE_SAN\DATA\SYSTEM\REPD_SYSTEM_01.DBF'  

What are my options besides rebuilding d/base???
