Configure Recovery Catalog - Rman


> we can use same instance for catalog db. my recommendation is separate instance is better.
> create separate schema and grant 'recovery_catalog_owner' privilege
> configure password file and listener file

1. configure recovery catalog.

$> export oracle_sid=rmandb
$> rman catalog rmanc/rmanc

rman> create catalog tablespace tbsnam;
rman> exit;

2. Register target db with catalog db

$> rman catalog rmanc/rmanc target sys@db1
target database password:
connected to target.....

rman> register database;
database register in recovery catalog...
rman> exit

3. check and confirm the db register with catalog db

login rman schema

$ sqlplus rmanc/rmanc
$ select * from db;

you can see the target db id and incarnation information..

now target db was configured with catalog db.. next we have to configure rman for target db...

I'm installing Oracle 10.2.0 on RHEL 4 ES. The Linux runs on VMWare 1.0.5. The Virtual Machine has 800 Mb of RAM, and 12Gb of hard drive space (/dev/sda).When I was running the Oracle Universal Installer, I got the following error message:

error in invoking target 'all_no_orcl ihsodbc' of makefile '/rman/oracle/product/10.2.0/rdbms/lib/

I was wounder what happen actually. i investigate the error log.. two library files are missing, so OUI not able to link files..

'/rman/oracle/product/10.2.0/rdbms/lib/'.See '/u01/app/oracle/oraInventory/logs/installActions2009-11-14_06-41-37PM.log'
