As already noted, no extra licensing is required for RMAN.

You can do it without another server as well.

Just use a current server that is not heavily loaded for your new database.

Another alternative,. create the schema in an existing database.

Do you have OEM? create it there. RMAN is pretty lightweight in resource usage.
