Dear group.

DB is 9iR2
We needed to move some datafiles, and the RMAN method we use in 10g, didn't work in 9i.

The script was:
copy datafile 285 to '/u08/oracle/oradata/blablabla.dbf'; switch datafile 285 to copy;

However, switch command RMAN 9i didn't like.. after fiddling with a few other commands, ended up with just running renames in nomout.

After doing that all my files in /u08 are listed as expired copies in RMAN. How do I let RMAN to use new datafiles?
