Q

Creating an RMAN catalog

I have created the RMAN database and the rman/rman user. I created the tablespace. Not too clear about the catalog. Do I need to run a script or package to create a catalog? Once the catalog is created, what are the next steps?

I have Oracle 9i RMAN on Linux. I am fairly new to Oracle and Linux as well. My objective is to have a test enviornment of RMAN. I will be using one machine to perform the test.

I have created the RMAN database and the rman/rman user. I created the tablespace. Not too clear about the catalog.

Do I need to run a script or package to create a catalog? Once the catalog is created, what are the next steps? I need to do this test end to end, one for a hot backup and one for a cold backup.

On my Web site, I have a white paper titled "RMAN Notes." This is in rough form, but it shows you how to create the catalog and how to perform basic RMAN backup and recovery operations.
