    Unanswered: restore controlfile and open resetlogs

    When I restore controlfile from autobackup
    and than restore database and recover database;
    I can only open the database with openresetlogs option.

    but I can apply archivelogs, that is created after the old controlfile.why force to open resetlogs?

    CONTROLFILE contains "current" SCN; & therefore are "obsolete" after the next transaction after being backed up.

    In order to open the database the SCN in the datafiles must match the SCN in the control files.
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
