RMAN-00571 RMAN-00569 ORA-01110 ORA-01180: can not create datafile 1

Filed under: Backup,Database,Oracle,RMAN — mani @ 5:05 pm

Problem: while I was trying to restore RMAN backup into standby server.  Ran into below issues.

RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-03002: failure of restore command at 11/02/2011 04:14:17
ORA-01180: can not create datafile 1
ORA-01110: data file 1: ‘+XN_DATA/xnodb02c/datafile/system.263.709351843’

Fix:  Tried many things like checking permission of ASM, the backup location is readable and list backup.  All looked good.  Finally checked incarnation, we had multiple incarnation.  I switch the incarnation and tried the restore then all went well.  Hope it is helpful to someone.

RMAN> list incarnation;

using target database control file instead of recovery catalog

List of Database Incarnations
DB Key  Inc Key DB Name  DB ID            STATUS  Reset SCN  Reset Time
——- ——- ——– —————- — ———- ———-
1       1       XNODB02C 2305192664       PARENT  1          27-JAN-10
2       2       XNODB02C 2305192664       CURRENT  1238601811 19-AUG-11


Fix:  Changed the incarnation.

RMAN> reset database to incarnation 1;

database reset to incarnation 1

Ran restore and recover.

run {
allocate channel d1 device type disk;
allocate channel d2 device type disk;
allocate channel d3 device type disk;
allocate channel d4 device type disk;
restore database;
switch datafile all;
switch tempfile all;
recover database;

alter database open resetlogs;
