First, I apologize for the dumb question. We are not Oracle Gurus, but are given a dataset we need to examine before passing along. In the past they gave us exp files and we figured out a way to get into them by adding all the usernames it asked for and then using the imp command to bring the db live. This time a different company gave us there files, but they gave them to us in .bkp format. There is are three folders(autobackup, backupset, onlinelog). Under the first two there are subfolders with a date and inside a file with .bkp. The thrird are 2 .log files. I get from researching that I need to use the rman commands, but I don't know db names, dbid etc from the original. Any links to how I should proceed? Thanks for your help!
