Just an addition:

"skip inaccessible" is absolutely dangerous! With this option set
rman skips datafils which are currently offline (by corruption or
whatever). If this datafile is longer online and you dont have the
archivelogs from where the datafile was put offline you *cannot*
put it back online again - the data is LOST!

So: Only use "skip inaccessible" if you know what
you´re doing!!
