    Unanswered: recover database using backup controlfile

    After I recreate the controlfile,when I issue:

    recover database using backup controlfile;


    the db is not opened:

    alter database open resetlogs;
    ERROR at line 1:
    ORA-01113: file 1 needs media recovery
    ORA-01110: data file 1: 'C:\ORACLEXE\ORADATA\XE\SYSTEM.DBF'

    However when I type:
    recover database using backup controlfile until cancel;


    I can open the database.

    SQL> alter database open resetlogs;
    Database altered.

    what is the diffrence between them?

    One gives an error & the other does not.
    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.
