I also do a cold backup of the recovery catalog database. But you can put a recovery catalog in another database to backup the 'real' recovery catalog database. This seems like a lot of work to me. I do a cold backup of the recovery catalog database when I know there is no rman activity.

I built the RMAN database on the Net Backup master server.

It gets backed up cold.

Yes, I realize I just admitted to a cold backup. I don't want RMAN backing
itself up, and don't want any RMAN activity taking place during a backup.

Kind of like Oracle Directory Server: You can't back it up hot either.

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.
