I have the following situation:
Backups of DB1(located on srv1 server) database are taken everyday at 1:00 AM.
I took backed up files(datafile,archivelog,controlfile,spfile) of 24/10/2011 and restored them on the server srv2.
During recovering Oracle required log file:
RMAN-06054: media recovery requesting unknown archived log for thread 1 with sequence 228 and starting SCN of 26651733
I searched that logfile on the server srv1 and copied it to the server srv2. Registered it with the database and run
recover databasecommand again. Still the same error, but with other sequence number and SCN.
RMAN-06054: media recovery requesting unknown archived log for thread 1 with sequence 229 and starting SCN of 26654944
These archivelogs are generated after 24/10/2011 so backup of this date should not know about newer archivelogs. I can set recovery until that sequence but I just wonder to know where is that SCN stored? Why does my Oracle requires newer archivelogs?
Server srv1 and srv2 are not contacting with each other.
Thank you a lot.
