Error with DB REFRESH method using BRBACKUP and BRRESTORE


Hi can any one guide,

I have installed SAP ABAP Instance with SID as ECD.

I have taken backup using BRBACKUP method i.e. FULL bakup via OFFLine.

I have generated control file.

I have setup the same environment in another system.

I have installed Java.

I have installed Oracle.

I have installed CI with SID as ECP.

I have installed DB with option brbackup and brrestore method.

@ the stage "Oracle preload actions" it has prompt to continue with restore process.

Then I have copied the complete bkup i.e. ECD and

I have deleted Datafiles.

I have deleted Log files.

I have deleted Control files.

I have deleted Oraarch files.

I have changed the SID " ECD" to " ECP".

I have edited the generated control file u201Cecd_ora_2852.trcu201D.

And named it to control.sql file.

Note:- where exactly I should paste this file.

When I logged into brtools it has throwed an error as show below

BR0753E Control file E:\oracle\ora92\database\CTL1ECP.ORA not found

Note:- If I create this file i.e. CTL1ECP.ORA and what contents should I paste it in this or I should leave this empty file.

I have created this file as empty file.

It throwed an error
