    Unhappy unable to create control file with raw datafiles

    Dear Friends,

    I am facing a problem while creating the controlfiles. The scenario is :

    1. I have a database on server1 with all datafiles as raw device files.
    2. We created the same structure of device files on new server say server 2 and copied all the files to new server.
    3. We also copied the init.ora file and the trace of control file we recevied from server one.
    4. Now When I am running the control file it is throughing me the following error :
    ORA-01503: CREATE CONTROLFILE failed
    ORA-01565: error in identifying file '/dev/vguwbdb/rts_system.dbf'
    ORA-27037: unable to obtain file status

    Can anybody help me. Urgent help will be highly appericiated.
