I have recently patched my catalog home to 9208 from 9204; the target database is still on 9204 but now I cannot connect to the catalog database.

The database instance "RMANDB" is not running. It was shutdown or it has crashed. Check the alert.log for RMANDB.

The catalog database must be open if you want to use it for your RMAN session.
(The target database does not need to be open.)

Nope, the RMANDB is up and running I can connect to it just fine .
The funny is when I issue

##> sqlplus rman/rman (it connect)

but when I issue
##> sqlplus rman/rman@RMANDB (it does connect and gives message below)

morojwa:RMANDB:/u01/app/oracle/product/RMANDB/dbs
sqlplus rman/rman@RMANDB

Both database nodes are open (read write) I can do a tnsping to both from either of the nodes.
Is it possible this is caused by the catalog database being 9208 and the target da 9204 ; I read
that it should work fine as the code level is 9.2.x .

A tnsping does not prove the database is open, just that the listener is there and listening for what you ask.

So this instance is not started and open.

No, it is not.
I trust Oracle over you.
If you want to convince me then execute and copy and paste the result of:
sqlplus rman/rman@RMANDB
followed by
select name, open_mode from v$database;

Yes initially that was the case I could not connect to the database in that way. If I specify the db_name in the connect string it did not connect. Having taken a closer look at the listener.ora file I have found that the oracle home running the catalog database was cloned and therefore the OracleHome had changed. The database is registered in the listener.ora file when the listener startup. The wrong OracleHome was used in the listener.ora file. I found it and sorted it out. I can now connet remotely from any tool.

!!! Correct OracleHome should have been . Thanks Knight I would not have looked there had you not asked me to post those outputs.

/u01/app/oracle/product/RMANDB

Because it is OBVIOUS for us that a DBA knows that when he uses @... then he uses tnsnames.ora and he should have first looked at this file.
