I have two guaranteed restore points with a datafile added to the tablespace between.   Once I flashback to first restore point, the first datafile gets removed from the database and disk.  This is expected behaviour.    Once that flashback is complete, and I open the database with resetlogs, I get errors trying to flash this same database back to the second guaranteed restore oint which should bring back the added datafile.


What is the procedure for running this second flashback?
