Re: Recovery from online backup
Contrary to its syntax, this command does not actually backup the
controlfile. Rather, it creates a trace file with the commands to recreate
the controlfile. Open it up with a text editor and copy the correct lines
into SQL*Plus while connected to an idle instance of your database. Note
that there are two sets of commands, to recreate the controlfile with or
without resetting the logs.
