I was cloning a database from a hot backup..and during the process i had to apply the generated archived logs.started applying one by one..and then when all the archive logs that were shipped to me were exhausted ..(the hotbackup was shipped to me from a remote site by the DBA) i tried to open the database by saying
svrmgrl>alter database open reselogs
I had a message saying file sys1.dbf needs more recovery..and after that i again tried
svrmgrl>recover database using backup controlfile until cancel
then it prompted me for a archive log file that was not there at all..(mean not shipped to me at all)..and i couldnt open the database with resetlogs optin..i suspect that the DBA there did not issue
alter system archive log current..in his hot backup script ?am i right can i reproduce this situation..
