RMAN restore read only data files, including read write datafiles

When performing a restore of a copy with RMAN (Oracle Database), may appear notices as:

datafile #NUM not processed because file is read-only

This is because it has been used the command:

restore database;

That does not restore, by default, readonly datafiles, to force verification of the existence of these datafiles (and its creation if necessary), you must make restoration with:

restore database check readonly;

Very important if we are restoring to a new machine.
