I wonder if it is possible to restore Oracle 8i DB with only the datafiles.  We have a tape backup of all the Oracle directories but the server was gone so we have to restore it on a different server.  What are the steps to do the restore.

On unix systems, you only need to restore all datafiles to their respective locations, including redolog, controlfiles and init.ora file.

You need to have same oracle version installed.

On windows system, of course you have to restore datafiles to same locations too, but, you will have to recreate oracle services with oradin command.

Best luck
