Restore using brtools fail due to missing control files

Good day

i am trying to perform a restore an SAP Oracle 10 database using brtools and backint. I do not have the control files on disk. In brtools I used option 5 - Restore and recovery., then option 7 - Disaster recovery. I restore the profiles and log files from BRBACKUP backup. The option to restore the control file copy here is locked out. From the BRBACKUP logs I see the control file is being backed up though.

I then restore the profiles and log files from BRARCHIVE backup - it is possible here to restore the control file copy. The problem is that the control file was not backed up by BRARCHIVE - it does not show it in the logs either.

When I therefore choose option 1 - Complete recovery, the first task is to check the database files. The brtools utility stops because it does not find the control files.

how do I restore the control files?
