What are the advantages of RMAN and what are the disadvantages/advantages of using a catalog. Then I like to run a scenario through and see how they would handle it.

What does 11g provide in terms of RMAN, good to see if they are 11g aware even if they are not yet using it.

Something I got asked a few times is: what are other uses for RMAN (other than backup and recovery). (intended answer was database duplication, migration to asm in 10g, etc)
