- Create a user for the RC. I will call that user RMAN in my example.
- Create a tablespace to hold the RC.
- Make this tablespace the default tablespace for the RMAN user.
- Grant the RECOVERY_CATALOG_OWNER role to the RMAN user.
- From RMAN, connect to the RC database:
os_prompt> rman catalog rman/pswd
- Create the RC:
rman> create catalog;
