Goal

What is the LEAST amount of recovery that has to be done before a database restored from a backup can be opened?

After performing a RESTORE / RECOVER, we need to perform a quick validation to ensure database is consistent and ready for OPEN RESETLOGS.

This proactive check helps to prevent several issues which may appear during or after OPEN RESETLOGS.

Through out this note we assume that you are restoring from a valid backup.

There can be more scenarios than discussed here. Please consult Oracle Support when in doubt.
