ORA-01180 and ORA-01110 during RMAN Restore


The below error occured while doing a full database restore to the test system. I also checked that I restored most recent control file and the backup sets are cataloged. I tried the process two times but still the same error.

Starting restore at 10-OCT-17

ORA-01180: can not create datafile 1
ORA-01110: data file 1: ‘+DATAC1/ALFA/DATAFILE/system.319.922730217’

When I searched Oracle Metalink, found below documents.

RMAN restore fails with ORA-01180: can not create datafile 1 (Doc ID 1265151.1)
RMAN restore of database fails with ORA-01180: Cannot create datafile 1 (Doc ID 392237.1)

I reset the database to the previous incarnation and run the restore & recovery again.

SQL> select INCARNATION#, RESETLOGS_TIME from v$database_incarnation order by RESETLOGS_TIME desc;

rman target /

RMAN> reset database to incarnation 1;

RMAN> restore database;

After reseting the database to the previous incarnation, restore operation completed successfully.
