I put the RMAN catalog in the same DB as the Grid Control repository. If you create a separate instance, you're pulling memory resources away from other database instances on the same server.

To me it seems like a good idea to create a catalog to use with RMAN. The databases where I will be running RMAN are on both AIX and Linux boxes. I'm thinking I should create a new database just for RMAN catalogs. Does anyone see a reason why I shouldn't create a separate database? And if I do create it, should I put in on the Linux box running Grid Control?
