Essentially yes. You *may* I doubt it in your case not have picked up on the distinction of restore (when you need to pull back files from the backups) and recovery (application of archived redo). RECOVER will not do the restore part - except where archive logs are not on disk, and RESTORE will not do the recover bit. So for complete restore and recovery you will need



These will use the most recent appropriate available backups (including incrementals) to attempt a complete recovery.

So I've been putzing around with rman and now I have a list of backups. If I want to restore the very last copy of the db, all I have to do is issue a:

RMAN> recover database;

that's it? And it will take that last copy even though I have about 7 or 8 listed?
