Re: BACKUP database question

Thanks, Tom and Ruth and others yet to reply,  We to are a quasi-state agency but the Oracle licensing is under a state controlled agency and must be purchased from them. If I use my Linux/8i test platform for company business then I must purchase a license. Although a 10 named license is not that expensive, I still have to get it past the Sr.VP (also SR.VP of finance - a CPA) Like a snowball in hel*.
 There is some risk envolved with the disk farm concept for both boxes but I think that is the way I will have to go. I will create a rman test repository on my Linux box and get the bugs worked out before I deploy to the production environment. Of course I could use the "non" repository method with the controlfile entries and not have to worry about a database.
Thanks,
I'm still investigating.

I have a small database on a separate disk which holds my recovery catalog.
I would like to have it on a separate server but that won't happen. I have
used the same recovery catalog for 4 years and it is onlyu ~88MB.

List,
 With all of the recent discussion and the forth coming books and the upgrade here to 8i I have a question.
Where do you build your RMAN repository database? If you build it in the same server as the one you are backing up then you risk the loss of everything in the event of a disk farm failure. If you created a separate server to hold the RMAN repository does it require a separate license for the oracle running on the server? We have a "clustered " environment with a disk farm and 2 Alpha boxes. One box will be Production and the other will be Development and they share the disk farm. If I use RMAN to backup the production box and keep
it in the development database I still have all of my eggs in one disk farm. If I create a separate server on a Linux pc I need a license for the Oracle database on the pc.
What methods have you used at your work location and I do not care about your licensing agreements.
Ron
