Creating a Recovery Catalog in Oracle 8i

How do I create a Recovery Catalog in Oracle 8i?
Creating a Recovery Catalog is quite easy. First, identify the database that will hold the RC. Sign on to that database as SYSTEM or SYS and perform the following actions:

  1. Create a user for the RC. I will call that user RMAN in my example.
  2. Create a tablespace to hold the RC.
  3. Make this tablespace the default tablespace for the RMAN user.
  4. Grant the RECOVERY_CATALOG_OWNER role to the RMAN user.
  5. From RMAN, connect to the RC database:

       os_prompt> rman catalog rman/pswd

  6. Create the RC:

       rman> create catalog;

Of course, this is all fully documented in the Oracle docs.
