RMAN-20242: specification does not match

Restoring archives from tape occurs the following error;


Starting restore at 31-MAR-14
released channel: tape2
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-03002: failure of restore command at 03/31/2014 12:52:44
RMAN-20242: specification does not match any archive log in the recovery catalog


The problem is that an archive not have been  inventoried and subsequent in this copy of controlfile. In this case the problem came because  I’m using a controlfile like catalog which is an old copy and has not cataloged all the archives, the solution has been to change the controlfile for a copy of current controlfile, where are catalog the files that I need. Perhaps the best solution would be to have one recovery catalog where always be updated more.
