RMAN:Restore datafiles to Nondefault location

You have just experiences a serious media failure and won't able to restore datafiles to their original location.In this case, you need to restore datafiles to a nondafault location.

You can use set newname and switch commands to restore datafiles to nondefault locations. You must set newaname command and the switch command from within a run{} block.
The switch command updates the target database controlfile with new location of the datafile. It's OK to use switch datafile all, which updates all datafile locations.

If you are performing Point in time recovery (POITR) ensure you switch datafiles before you perform the recovery.

You can read from http://mohamedazar.wordpress.com/2010/09/01/rman-restoring-datafile...

Now we can see the examples.
I have created one tablespace.Its name TEST with two datafiles test01.dbf,test02.dbf
The location is

C:\APP\MAZAR\ORADATA\OWN\TEST01.DBF (6) --> C:\APP\MAZAR\ORADATA\OWN\new\TEST01.DBF (Target new location)

C:\APP\MAZAR\ORADATA\OWN\TEST02.DBF (7) --> C:\APP\MAZAR\ORADATA\OWN\new\TEST02.DBF (Target new location)

If the database is open, you can place the datafile offline and then set their new names for restore and recovery.

RMAN> run{
2> sql 'alter database datafile 6,7 offline';
3> set newname for datafile 6 to 'C:\APP\MAZAR\ORADATA\OWN\new\test01.dbf';
