Subject: RE: Recovery from online backup
The backup script contained the command:
alter database backup controlfile to '<destination_path/file>'
I tried to copy the controlfile from the <destination_path/file> to the
original location, but still the database cannot mount (ORA-00205
Is document id 94114.1 correct or some more steps needed to be performed?
