Hi guys,

              I was wondering what advice you had on limiting and organizing DBs into different RMAN schemas.

            We've got a client with lots of DBs, who wants to move more to RMAN.  

Unfortunately not everyone is proficient in RMAN to start with (I got elevated to #2 in proficiency, but don't be excited about that)

And we've had several cases where a DB was cloned and the DBID wasn't changed.

So I got to fix the Incarnations.  

    We've also had problems where a DB was upgraded to 10G but the schema wasn't etc., etc.  

    We've got 3 different RMAN catalog databases. All

    Some have schemas with as many as 30 DBs being maintained.

    The DBs range from 8.1.6 to  

    We've had a number of performance issues and earlier someone had split all the SAP DBs into their own.

There's at least a dozen of those. The other schemas are generally divided into specific releases and prod/dev/test.  

    I've been thinking about not using catalogs for the dev & test DBs and just sticking with the control files.  

    We want to create another RMAN DB and I thought we might as well go to 11G, but everyone is very leery about that.

I did like the new import feature in 11G.       

    Suggestions and warnings welcome.

  Do have a copy of Note: 247611.1 Known RMAN Performance Problems       

    TIA       Larry Wolfson
