Hi Mark,
Unfortunately, no difference. What bugs me as well is the difference between the controlfile (20-10-2013) and the checkpoint time of the datafiles (9-8-2013) It's almost as if I've got to versions of the database mixed up, even though this is a copy of a SAN lun that was last changed by the server which is now dead (according my information, that is). How could that happen?
