The simple answer to your question is NO.
If the control file is the only thing on that disk, when you "pull it" Oracle will flag it as missing in the alert log. You will only be able to recover it after you shutdown your database.
Assuming 10gR2 because you did not specify a version... See: http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B19306_01/server.102/b14231/control.htm#i1006456
If you were using 10g+ASM you could potentially not have this problem. Received on Fri Jan 23 2009 - 21:02:11 CST
