su - oracle
export ORACLE_SID=rcat1
sqlplus "/ as sysdba"

startup mount
alter database archivelog;
alter database open;
select * from v$database;

Is there anything missing to start up RCAT with these commands?

I found that RMAN was started with archivelog on but DISABLED.

is the parameter log_archive_start set to TRUE in the pfile/spfile?
if not, archiving will not start automatically (on instance startup).

now, if you don't want to restart the database right now, but start archiving:
alter system archive log start;

note: usually, the RMAN/RCAT database itself is not in archivelog mode...
