Actually, Brandon, a read of the original posting shows that he did, in fact, unregister the old database from the old catalog, "As part of it, I have unregistered the production database on rman catalog on server A and I have changed my database DBID using NID tool in server B and registered with new DBID to the catalog database."

So, that explains why he can't find anything under the old DBID. As Brandon mentioned, you'll need to restore the catalog database and recover to a point in time from before you unregistered the old DB.

I don't understand why you changed the dbid to begin with but I guess it's a bit late for that question. How are you querying the rman catalog when trying to find info on the old dbid? You might need to use the "set dbid" command first if you're going through rman, or if you're just querying via sql*plus and the data isn't there in, for example, rc_database, then maybe someone already unregistered the old database and deleted all the old backup information associated with it, in which case you'll probably want to try restoring an old copy of your recovery catalog from before that was done.
