Re: RMAN catalog question

RMAN Compatibility Matrix [ID 73431.1] provides a little more details. RMAN executeable <= target database (when backup 9i database, use 9i RMAN) Catalog schema >= RMAN executeable
Catalog database >=10.2.0.3 (note 1)
Based on the information, I would create the RMAN database and catalog using the latest and greatest release to ensure compatibilty.
