1. If you say that the source database was shutdown yesterday then
all datafiles in that
database would have been checkpointed and timestamped yesterday.
If that one file has an older timestamp (ie it did not get updated by
the database shutdown checkpoint)
then it seems as if that file does not belong to the current
incarnation (since the last resetlogs)
of the source database.
2. Was the source database itself created as a copy of another with
incomplete recovery and
resetlogs OR was the source database at some point opened with a
resetlogs ? Can you find out why ?
3. If you can mount the controlfile (or open) of the source
database, you can query
V$DATAFILE / V$DATAFILE_HEADER or just do a BACKUP CONTROLFILE TO TRACE
to list all the datafiles that "belong" to the source database.
4. If this one datafile really doesn't belong to the database how
did it get included in your
CREATE CONTROLFILE script ? Was the CREATE CONTROLFILE script
or really generated from a BACKUP .. TRACE ?
