If flashback database is enabled, restore point created, then an offline conversion process to transfer non-encrypted tablespace to encrypted started. When it is half way through the conversion process, say 50% of tablespaces have been encrypted but the rest have not, there is power outage or some issue that we could not finish within the maintenance window. With flashback enabled and restore point created before the conversion starts, is it possible to flash back the database to its restore point before the conversion starts?
