    Hi Mooks

    I think there is something wrong with the date format set untli that part.thats why it ddi not mount.

    can you please change the date part to

    to_date('06-jul-2005 16:50:00','dd-mon-yyyy hh24:mi:ss')

    regards

    There was a bug (at least in 8.1.7 under Windoze) that prevented using to_date in the "set until" statement. I was obliged to set NLS_DATE_FORMAT in the environment and put the date as a string in the "set until". (Sorry, no refs, I'm on a desert island at the moment).

    I am executing the code in a linux machine and it is running oracle 9.2.0.4....

    Extracted from metalink:

    Specifying Dates in RMAN Commands

    -----------------------------------

    When specifying dates in RMAN commands, the date string can be either:

    1) A literal string whose format matches the NLS_DATE_FORMAT setting.

    2) A SQL expression of type DATE, for example, 'SYSDATE-10' or
    "TO_DATE('01/30/1997', 'MM/DD/YYYY')".

    Note that the second example includes its own date format mask and so is independent of the current NLS_DATE_FORMAT setting.

    Can you please try this instead of the earlier command

    SET UNTIL TIME 'Jul 06 2005 16:50:00'

    Hi Mooks,

    Yes, that's what the doc said - but it didn't actually work. (Or I was too stupid to get it to work.) But I'm fairly sure that I saw a note somewhere saying to_date didn't do the trick.

    Hi Mooks

    I hope you are using these lines in your code

    restore controlfile to /tmp/control01.ctl;
    restore controlfile from /tmp/control01.ctl ;

    instead restoring the controlfile from autobackup.

    Just wundering do the controlfiles get restored atleast ? at /tmp location ?

    I hope your SID env is correct ?

    regards

    Nothing was restored as the execution codes were struck at the SET TIME format...
