When you must restore the database the same directory structure is not always there. If you have a database containing 1000s of datafiles it can be very tedious to setup the set newname commands for all the datafiles. Using sqlplus we can extract the information we need into a file which can then be easily modifed and executed as an RMAN script to complete the task.
SET NEWNAME FOR DATABASE TO '/oradata1/%b';
