Hi Tiran,

You need to be connected to a recovery catalog to run this. Otherwise, how can RMAN know about the available backup since these are stored in controlfile/catalog?

    controlfile restore


Sorry for simple question but I looking for some way to do restore controlfile with RMAN SET UNTIL TIME. 
For example you have 100 controlfiles in tape device and don't want to look and find manually the exact one which you need just put RMAN SET UNTIL TIME and restore it. 

Why I always get ORA-01507: database not mounted (restore controlfile from AUTOBACKUP;) ? Controlfile must be restored in nomount state.


Best Regards
Stay in touch...
