First thoughts:

  1. What does step 2 really mean? How was it refreshed? Were the control files overwritten?
  2. If an RMAN catalog repository is used (separate database for RMAN catalog) then question 1 becomes less important.

If the control files were overwritten, and the answer to #2 is false, it should still
be possible to restore form dbA at T1 if the backup files are available on disk,
though it will be more difficult.
