Steps to Upgrade Rman Catalog Database.
Date: Tue, 23 Sep 2008 02:36:59 +0530
We have created a new Oracle 10.2.0.3 rman recovery catalog which works fine with our Oracle 9 and 10 (10.2.0.3) databases on Solaris Server
Problem is that I also just created a new installation of Oracle 10.2.0.4 on a new Solaris server but I can't seem to register my new database from this server. I get the following message when I connect from the 10.2.0.4 client to the 10.2.0.3 RMAN catalog database:
$ rman target sys/$SYS catalog rman/xxxxxxx_at_ccrcat
Recovery Manager: Release 10.2.0.4.0 - Production on Tue May 27 09:50:14 2008

connected to target database: ASCT (DBID=2479914243)
connected to recovery catalog database
PL/SQL package RMAN.DBMS_RCVCAT version 10.02.00.03 in RCVCAT database is not current
PL/SQL package RMAN.DBMS_RCVMAN version 10.02.00.03 in RCVCAT database is not current
From metalink i understood that
RMAN catalog schema version should be atleast equal to or greater than its target database. So yes upgrade to 10.2.0.4 According to this metalink note: RMAN Compatibility Matrix Doc ID: Note:73431.1 ,
My question is what are the steps I need to follow for upgrading catalog database. Also i have installed 10.2.0.4 oracle software on rman catalog database server.Kindly advice on this
Thanks and Regards,
