Hi all,

I have this scenario on my recover task and it's not succesful when I tried to recover the database.

power surge caused the database crash and media failure, losing all the online logs.

SVRMGRL> shutdown abort

$ rm cradata\houston\*.log
$ cp /home/backup/*.log cradata\houston\

SVRMGRL> startup mount
ORACLE instance started.

SVRMGR> recover database until cancel;

O/S-Error: (OS 2) The system cannot find the file specified.
ORA-01547: warning: RECOVER succeeded but OPEN RESETLOGS would get error below
ORA-01194: file 1 needs more recovery to be consistent

the thing is ARC01267.001' never exists un the archive log so why Oracle ask for you??? is it b/c I have uncommit process when the database crash???

Please advise and solutions of how to fix this issues.
