i have to attend a recovery scenario where my database
7.3.4 will need to be recovered from a cold backup with archive log mode option.

so i watnedt o make sure that the following steps are correct to recovery a database using cold backup then apply archive logs to bring up to the date..

recovery mountpoints...ie database files...
startup database w/ mount option...
then recover??

how will Oracle know to apply all the archive logs? rename archive logs to redo logs then let oracle to automatic recovery??????:
