ORA-00296 maximum number of files (string) exceeded for RECOVER DATAFILE LIST

Cause: The RECOVER DATAFILE LIST command specified more datafiles than are allowed by the DB_FILES initialization parameter. This error occurs when doing recovery with Recovery Manager, and the instance has been started with a DB_FILES parameter specifying fewer datafiles than Recovery Manager needs to recover to satisfy the user's RECOVER command.

Action: Restart the instance with a higher value for DB_FILES.
