I am thinking you shouldn't have issued your resetlogs, however my knowledge of flashback stuff is limited to say the least :-( ??

Good to know about the flash forward until; thanks!

What commands/processes did you use?
This is what I did and I had problems. Any thoughts?

Shutdown immediate;
startup mount;
FLASHBACK DATABASE TO TIMESTAMP timestamp'2010-03-01 09:41:49'; alter database open resetlogs;

SQL> RECOVER database until time '2010-03-01:09:42:38'; ORA-00283: recovery session canceled due to errors ORA-19907: recovery time or SCN does not belong to recovered incarnation

	Hello Patrick,
	Been testing flashback a bit recently so when I saw your email
	I would test. Tested this with on linux, and yep you
	definitely can flashback and then roll forward, I did a recover
	database until change to roll forwards again.
	As Freek pointed to open read-write a flashed back database you
need a
	resetlogs, but of course you can open read-only without this.
	Once you have flashed back you can even use flashback database
	"flash forward" and undo your flashback.
