I'm trying to do a hot backup with rman that I can copy to a USB drive so I can recover it on a new server.

The backup was done two days ago and the restore database command was working on the same day so I guess I need to use UNTIL SCN with the last SCN but I get RMAN-20208: UNTIL CHANGE is before RESETLOGS change

I saw on the Internet that I should use RESET DATABASE but I get RMAN-06002: command not allowed when not connected to a recovery catalog and I think this procedure may only work with Oracle 10 and later (I'm using Oracle 9i).

Any ideas?

Backup in rman

CONFIGURE CONTROLFILE AUTOBACKUP ON;
CONFIGURE CONTROLFILE AUTOBACKUP FORMAT FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO 'c:/brubru/auto/%F';

run
{
CROSSCHECK BACKUP;
CROSSCHECK COPY;
CROSSCHECK BACKUPSET;
CROSSCHECK COPY OF DATABASE;
CROSSCHECK archivelog all;

allocate channel d1 device type disk format 'c:/brubru/%U.bkp';
BACKUP CHECK LOGICAL DATABASE format ‘c:/brubru/data_%d_%s_%T.bak’ PLUS ARCHIVELOG DELETE INPUT;
release channel d1;
}

Restore (on a second server)
