Hi there,

this is not really the answer to your question (I think that's been given already), but can you make use of the flashback database feature?

It can be used to flash the database prior to it's resetlogs scn. You can then convert it to a physical standby database and put it back into managed recovery mode. I think this is explained in the Data Guard Concepts and Administration guide, chapter "scenarios".

Hope that helps,
