ORA-19903: test recovery not allowed when recovering to new incarnation

Cause : Either a new incarnation was set using RMAN's RESET DATABASE command for a control file that was CURRENT, or the control file is from a prior incarnation. As recovery to a new incarnation requires changing the control file, test recovery is not allowed.

Action - How to fix it : DBA Scripts :: www.high-oracle.com/scripts

Perform actual recovery or RESET DATABASE to incarnation that was last opened using the control file to do test recovery.
