 RMAN-06003: ORACLE error from target database: ORA-01152: file 3 was not restored from a sufficiently old backup


### Restore Scripts used ###

RMAN> run {
run allocate channel t1 type disk;
restore controlfile;

RMAN> run {
allocate channel t1 type disk;
alter database mount;
restore database;
set until logseq=398 thread=1;
recover database;
alter database open resetlogs;
release channel t1;


### RMAN Errorstack ###


Recover 3 is where the 1st error occurred. In recover(3) phase we are looking
for any redo that can be applied to the files. In this case we need to apply
sequence# 398 to roll datafile 3 forward.

The 'set until logseq 398 thread 1' will stop after log sequence 397 has been
applied so 398 will not be applied for recovery. The highest change# in that
case will be 419414 (Next SCN-1).

### Alert.log ###

Verify the checkpoint change# of the restored datafile.

Thu Aug 8 08:02:29 2002
Full restore complete of datafile 3 /<path>/<file_name>.dbf
checkpoint is 419897

The alert.log shows the change# for all restored files so we can use this
value to verify that the correct 'set until' was used.
