The process for a full database recovery when in archivelog mode is as follows:

  1. Restore all database datafiles from backup
  2. Restore all archived redo logs
  3. Mount the database: startup mount
  4. Recover the database: recover database
  5. Enter aut when oracle prompts you to apply the redo logs.
  6. Open the database: alter database open
