    RMAN Question

    Hi experts
    i have a question on incomplete recovery with RMAN, with UNTIL TIME CLAUSE.

    I have this situation:

    T1............. T2 ......T? ..............T3........................... T4......... T5
    ___________ __________________ ___________________ ________
    ................BKP.........................BKP...........................BKP


    T1 is initial time, T5 is now.
    T2, T3, T4 r the time in which i make backup (BKP)
    I'd like to restore my DB, at T? time. It's between T2 and T3.
    I make correct syntax but i receive this error:
    run {
    shutdown immediate;
    startup mount;
    sql "alter session set nls_date_format = ''DD-MON-YYYY HH24:MI:SS''";
    set until time '14-MAR-2008 12:11:00';
    restore database;
    recover database;
    alter database open resetlogs;
    }
    Error:
    RMAN-06004: ORACLE error from recovery catalog database: RMAN-20207: UNTIL TIME is before RESETLOGS time

    It's possibile this kind of recovery? or i can only recover the last version of backups?

    PS:Sorry for my poor english

    Code:
    oerr RMAN 20207
    20207, 1, "UNTIL TIME or RECOVERY WINDOW is before RESETLOGS time"
    // *Cause: UNTIL TIME and RECOVERY WINDOW cannot be less than the database
    //         creation time or RESETLOGS time.
    // *Action: Check the UNTIL TIME or RECOVERY WINDOW. If the database
    //          needs to be restored to an old incarnation, use the
    //          RESET DATABASE TO INCARNATION command.

    Do this...
    Code:
    select created, resetlogs_time from v$database;
    Is your set until time '14-MAR-2008 12:11:00' happening before any of these?
    If this is the case you have to use RESET DATABASE TO INCARNATION command
