Symptoms

You would like to restore a database to a point-in-time, but the backup being used is from before the last resetlogs.  

The problem is that when a database is opened with resetlogs, the incarnation of the database is also reset and RMAN keeps a record of the incarnation of the
database in the Recovery Catalog.
