ORA-01674:

data file string is an old incarnation rather than current file
Cause: Recovery encountered redo that indicates this file was dropped from the database and another file was added using the same file number. This implies that a CREATE CONTROLFILE command was given the old file which was dropped rather than the latest file.
Action: Rebuild the control file using CREATE CONTROLFILE, and give the correct file.
